Rudolf Israel Kastner was a Jewish-Hungarian journalist and lawyer who became known for helping Jews escape Nazi-occupied Hungary during the Holocaust.

He was assassinated in 1957 after an Israeli court accused him of having collaborated with the Nazis. Kastner was one of the leaders of the Vaadat Ezrah Vehatzalah -the Aid and Rescue Committee, or Vaada- a small Jewish group in Budapest who helped Jewish refugees escape from Nazi Europe into Hungary during World War II, then helped them escape from Hungary after the Nazis invaded that country too on March 19, 1944.

Between May and July 1944, Hungarys Jews were being deported to the gas chambers at Auschwitz at the rate of 12,000 people a day-for resettlement, as the Nazis said. Kastner negotiated with Adolf Eichmann, a senior SS officer, to allow 1,685 of them to leave instead for Switzerland on what became known as the Kastner train, in exchange for money, gold, and diamonds.
