Hermann Krumey, Adolf Eichmann’s deputy in the wartime murder of 450, 000 Hungarian Jews, told the Budapest Council of Jews in 1944 that he alone would decide on what would happen to them, according to testimony in his trial here.

This testimony on Krumey’s 1944 statement to the Council of Budapest Jews came in the form of a deposition from Samuel Kahan-Frankl, 74, a member of the Council, who now lives in Brooklyn. He made a deposition on Krumey before the West German Consul in New York, who transmitted the document to Frankfurt court officials.
