“Kasztner’s Crime.”

"Bogdanor was “extremely shocked” to find that everything pointed towards Kasztner’s having been “a collaborator” with the Nazis"

“Kasztner’s Crime,” published in October, sets out the case against the Jewish leader in damning detail. Even the most devoted defender might have second thoughts after reading his book."

Here is a question I have about Kastner and the way the story is told over: Assuming he was indeed 100% guilty of collaborating with the Nazis, how much evidence is there that he did so out of some sort of Zionistic motivations, rather than simply looking to save his own life?

Eichmann's List: a pact with the devil

Reuven and his brother Chaim spent time in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and, together with their mother, were among the 1,684 Jews who escaped Nazi-controlled Hungary on the Kastner train, which consisted of 35 cattle trucks that left Budapest on June 30, 1944, carrying them to safety in Switzerland.

Kastner, a Jewish-Hungarian lawyer and journalist, negotiated with Adolf Eichmann, the German SS officer, to allow a number of Jews to escape the Holocaust in exchange for gold, diamonds, and cash.

Reb Reuven was often asked how he was zocheh to get one of the coveted spots on the Kastner train together with the Satmar Rov, Rav Yoel Teitelbaum zt”l. He explained to his children that his mother, Sasha Elke, who had remarried, was a big “askan.” She was very involved in communal affairs. She was well-to-do and well-connected to influential people, and that was the zechus that saved him, he explained.

Q: "Here is a question I have about Kastner and the way the story is told over: Assuming he was indeed 100% guilty of collaborating with the Nazis, how much evidence is there that he did so out of some sort of Zionistic motivations, rather than simply looking to save his own life?"
-----------------------------------------

"Kasztner, The murder of most of Nazi-occupied Hungary’s Jews in 1944. Because he was acting head of the "Jewish rescue operation in Hungary", some have hailed him as a savior."

The whole re-trial was a scam to exonerate "themselves".
Saly Mayer a Swiss Jewish leader and representative of the "American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee" in Switzerland. left plenty of hard evidence of dead end pleas of help. Joel Brand was a leading member, in the 1940s, of "Budapest's Aid and Rescue Committee" smuggled out of Hungary hard evidence of what was happening there, he was held captive by the zionists and British until the end of the war not to alarm the world "the zionists controlled the message" The knew it all.

Theodor Herzl, wrote; anti-semitisim is “anunderstandable reaction to Jewish defects.” In his diary he wrote: “I find the anti-Semites are fully within their rights".

תקוותם של 6 מליון יהודים מרוכזת על עליה מתהומות הטרגדיה, אני רוצה להציל 2 מליון נוער, "הזקנים יאבדו" הם יחכו לגורלם, הם אבק כלכלי ומוסרי בעולם אכזרי. רק ענף הנוער יישאר, הזקנים צריכים לעמוד בכך, ולהשלים עם כך. חיים וייסמאן. שר"י

Rezső Kasztner ! ימח שמו וזכרו

The prophet Moses, The arch enemy of Egypt was saved by the house of Pahroh !

The Prophet King David our saviour, was saved through "luts" shinanigans..! the list goes on..

any praise you wanna lavish on pahroh or on the king of Sodom and Gomorrah ?

Kasztner intentional torts
against 500,000+ Jews amounts to intentional murder, Kastztner did not need any specific zionists orders he was the ultimate "Zionist/Devil Murder!" and his intentions certainly wasn't to save the arch enemy of his Breed! RJT, the opposite is through if only he would knew.

Gratitude for "the savior Kasztner"? Haman didn't kill any Jews, neither did the king of Sodom & Gomorrah? Kasztner was a mass murderer he should be cursed anytime you mention the Devil himself by his name: Rezső Kasztner ימח שמו וזכרו

As the present Chortkover Rebbe, I humbly state that I tried to rescue THOUSANDS of Jews from the horrors of the Holocaust. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful-primarily because I was not yet born. Machshavos tovos mitztarfin l'maaseh.I take pride and solace in that.

באור ליום ה' כ' חשון תשי"ד בא הרבי, לנחם את בעל ה"ויואל משה" מסטמאר זצ"ל בניחום אבלים לאחר פטירת בתו מרת חיה רוזא ע"ה (נפטרה בי"ד חשון תשי"ד)

מספר הגאון רבי אלחנן הילפרין זצ"ל: בעת שרבי יואל מסאטמער בעל ה"ויואל משה" ישב שבעה, בא אליו הרבי מליובאוויטש לנחמו, ושוחח כשעתיים בעניני תורה שמותר לדבר בהם באבילות. כשהרבי יצא התבטא האדמו"ר מסאטמער: "ער האט אן אחד בדורו'דיקען זכרון!" [=יש לו זכרון של אחד בדורו].י

How does prove what motivated KASTNER?

Other groups also refused to give from their funds for rescue work. Why are the Zionists always singled out?
