The Man Who Was Murdered Twice: The Life, Trial and Death of Israel Kasztner
Was Kasztner a collaborator and opportunist, who had “sold his soul to the devil”, as Judge Benjamin Halevi stated, who failed to warn the Transylvanian and Hungarian Jews of their impending fate in order to survive and save those close to him, or a brave leader who saved as many Jews as he could to escape on the “rescue train” in June 1944? The present volume provides new information on the controversy, based on a variety of new documents. The book covers the history of Kasztner’s negotiations with the Nazis to his death and posthumous results of the trial and discusses his complex personality. NIS 174.

We are pleased to announce that Yad Vashem Studies, 39:1, has just been published. This volume is available for purchase at the catalogue price of NIS 80.
Yad Vashem Studies, 39:1 is dedicated to the memory of Maxime Steinberg, the Belgian Jewish historian who pioneered the study of the Holocaust in Belgium, and opens with an article on his contribution to the field.
The research articles in this volume address Jewish reactions during and after the Shoah, the question of rescue during the Shoah, reactions in North America, and more. Rescue attempts ranging from the town of Oświęcim (Auschwitz) to Alaska; Jewish survival strategies in Germany; Israeli remembrance of the Righteous Among the Nations and grappling with the memory of Jewish policemen in Poland; information and reactions in Canada; and reviews of recent important books highlight the latest issue.
