  • "A stencil copy (typescript) in German was published in Geneva in 1946 and entitled: Der Bericht des jüdischen Rettungskommitees aus Budapest, 1942–1943, 191 pp. It was also published in Basel in 1946 by the Vaadah Ezra Vehazalah Budapest. This became exhibit T 1113 in the Eichmann Trial and was issued in expanded form in 1961 as: E. Landau, ed., Der Kasztner Bericht über Eichmann's Menschenhandel in Ungarn. (Munich: Kindler, 1961, 367 pp.) As far as it known, it has not been translated into English, although Kasztner's interrogations and depositions about Kurt Becher for the Nuremberg Tribunal are available in German as well as English in the National Archives." —Page [1]
