Dr. Israel Kasztner was considered a hero by many for the role he played in rescuing over sixteen hundred Hungarian Jews from death in 1944. Kasztner negotiated directly with Adolf Eichmann to purchase Jewish lives and thousands were transported to Switzerland on what became known as "Kasztner's train." However, after moving to Israel, many of Kasztner's new countrymen accused him of collaborating with the enemy and he was assassinated in Tel Aviv in 1957.
