Product Description

On July 9 1944, two months after his 11th birthday, the gates of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp closed behind Ladislaus Löb. Five months later, with the Second World War still raging, he crossed the border into Switzerland, cold and hungry, but alive and safe. He was not alone, but among the 1,670 Jewish men, women, and children from Hungary who had been rescued from the Nazis as a result of a deal negotiated by a man named Rezsö Kasztner. Twelve years later, Kasztner was murdered by an extremist Jewish gang in his adopted home of Israel. This book tells the story of Kasztner, as well as the story of a child who lived to grow up after the Holocaust thanks to his efforts. This first-hand account offers extraordinary insights into one of the least known and most surprising episodes of the “war against Jews.”
