Oh my, there are too many details. Rather than clarifying, they confuse. I actually want to quit this.... How much more can I take? I have read 111 of 466. It is a very bad sign when you start looking at page numbers.
Nope, I am giving this up. I picked up Armenian Golgotha just to check out a bit about the author who survived the Armenian Genocide in Turkey, 1915. This is also a book of non-fiction. Now this I cannot put down. Non-fiction does not have to be dry and confusing as I found "Kasztner's Train" to be!
I do not intend on finishing "Kasztner's Train". I will give it two stars because it is clearly well researched. It has an index, photos, a map and notes for every chapter. I didn't like it much, irregardless of all the effort put into it. Please do not judge the author by this book. See below.
I simply must add this book, b/c the author blew me away with her book entitled The Storyteller: Memory, Secrets, Magic and Lies.
This biography is about Kasztner, a Hungarian who, like the more well-known Schindler and Wallenberg, saved many Hungarian Jews in WW2. He was assassinated in Israel in 1957 b/c right wings thought he had collaborated with the Nazis! He saved Jewish lives through monetary payments to Nazis and by putting others in Austrian labor camps where their chance of survival was better. He was accused of not warning other less wealthy Hungarian Jews. Some say he paid Nazis with "blood money". A very controversial figure. In this author's hands the story must be riveting.
