Kastner-Gruenwald Case May Be
Reopened, Israeli Attorney Says;
Eichmann Memoirs Bear Out Tale

Samuel Tamir, prominent Is-
raeli attorney, • who was the
guest here of Mr. and Mrs.
William Hordes, revealed on the
eve of his return to Israel that
the Kastner-Gruenwald case may
be reopened as a result of the
Eichmann capture and ap-
proaching trial.
The sensational case, which
touched off a cabinet crisis in
Israel five years ago, will be
reopened for trial within two
weeks, reliable sources insist, al-
though Tamir, who has been
with the case since 1954, would
neither confirm nor deny the
Nazi exterminator Adolph
Eichmann whose memoirs in
Life Magazine have brought new
evidence to the case would be
sought as witness.
The original suit was brought
against Malkiel Gruenwald, an
immigrant to Israel from Hun-
gary, charged with falsely ac-
cusing Rudolf Kastner, a Je
ish Agency official in Hung
of collaborating with the
and lying at the Nuremb
er SS
crimes trials to save f
Col. Kurt Becher.

Court, but Gruenw

Kastner was subs

for pressing the case and later
According to Tamir, the Eich-
mann memoirs appear to bear
out the original charges that
K as t n e r bargained with the
Nazis to save about 20 members
_ of his own family and several
hundred other Jews he selected.
Kastner's "end of the bar-
gain" was to help keep the Jews
from resisting deportation to
Auschwitz and perhaps keep
order in the collection camps.
Eichmann describes Kastner
as "an ice-cold lawyer and a
fanatical Zionist . . . with his
great polish and reserve he
would have made an ideal
Gestapo officer himself."
Other sensational implications

involve side transactions and
possible perjury at the Nurem-
berg Trials.
Tamir, one-time commander
in Jerusalem of the Irgun un-
derground against the British
forces in Palestine, said he was
not engaged in any political ac-
tivity at the time of the trial,
and there is no political motive
in his defense of Gruenwald.
Still, the case could prove em-
barrassing for David Ben-Gurion
and the Mapai party which
Tamir's New Deal party hopes
to oppose in the 1962 elections.
