    A must read

    A must read for anyone who is not afraid of reading the truth. The sources at the end of the book are clear and organized. I can't believe someone who do such a thing to his own brothers and sisters.

    Controversial history related to the Holocaust.

    [Quoted from Wikipedia] Ben Hecht [...] wrote the book Perfidy, dramatizing the failure to rescue Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust, and the roles of the Zionist leader Rudolf Kastner and others in leadership positions in the Hungarian Jewish community. This issue was the subject of a famous libel trial, when the Israeli government sued a writer who accused Kastner, at the time a government minister, of having collaborated with the Nazis during the Holocaust. Although the court initially held that these accusations were correct, on appeal the verdict of collaboration was reversed by a split 3-2 decision in the Supreme Court. However the Supreme court upheld the decision of the lower court that Kastner saved Kurt Becher, a major German war criminal, from the punishment awaiting him at Nurenberg. The case remains controversial, and it is not universally accepted that Hecht's account can be accepted as fair.
