Killing Kasztner

Hero or Traitor – The Jew accused of collaborating with the Nazis. Rezso Kasztner known as the Jewish Schindler, negotiated face to face with Adolf Eichmann, rescuing 1700 Jews on a train to Switzerland. Yet Kasztner was condemned as a traitor in his adopted country of Israel; accused as a collaborator in a trial and verdict that divided a nation and forever stamped him as the “man who sold his soul to the devil.” He was ultimately assassinated by Jewish right wing extremists in Tel Aviv in 1957.
Director Gaylen Ross investigates this tale of murder, intrigue, and heroism through accounts of the inflammatory political trial, startling revelations after 50 years by Kasztners assassin, Zeev Eckstein, and a chilling meeting between the killer and Kasztners daughter, Zsuzsi.
