The dramatic true story of a train that left Hungary at the end of the war taking 1,684 Jews to freedom.

Adolf Eichmann and his SS Sondercommando were determined to eliminate the entire Jewish population of Hungary, but Rezso Kasztner – a lawyer and Zionist activist – negotiated with Eichmann, pretending he represented “world Jewry”, an imaginary entity that Eichmann believed existed. He saved 1,684 Jews and was devastated that he had not succeeded in saving more.

Kasztner’s Train – a reference to the famous train ride to freedom he organized – tells this dramatic story for the first time, including a shocking postscript.

Hungarian by birth, Anna Porter lived through the Hungarian Revolution as a child, and brings to this book a determination and passion to tell the full story of one of the heroes of the 20th century.
