As the fortunes of war turned against the Germans, the Naziswere willing to trade Jewish lives for urgently neededcommodities. They hoped also that negotiating only with theWestern Allies might drive a wedge into the Grand Alliance.Nowhere was this more apparent than in Hungary and in thenegotiations involving Joel Brand, an officer of the Assis-tance and Rescue Committee in Budapest. Brand went toIstanbul with a Nazi offer to spare the lives of a millionJews in return for 10,000 trucks (to be used only againstthe Russians) and a few other commodities. The Britisharrested Brand when he entered Syria from Turkey anddenounced the truck deal; and the slaughter of HungarianJews continued.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
