Hungary, March 1944 – Eichmann is intent on deporting every Hungarian Jew to Auschwitz but he doesn’t factor in to this process an audacious proposal to trade the lives of more than one and a half thousand Jews on a train bound for Switzerland for 10,000 trucks to be deployed on the Eastern Front. Was this collaboration or desperation? And how do you decide who should get on that train? Diane Armstrong explores one of the great moral dilemmas of the Holocaust in this fictional account based on true events. It’s a dilemma that is still unresolved despite the passage of time and the harshest retribution.
