Joel Brand, a member of the Jewish Rescue Committee, secretly met with Adolf Eichmann with the hope to trade goods for the lives of as many as one million Jews. The Jewish Rescue Committee assumed that the Jews of America and Britain and the Zionists could influence others to provide funds for a rescue of the Hungarian Jews in Auschwitz. But as armies focused on fighting and the Zionists focused on a new Palestinian state, saving the Jews of Europe was not a priority. As the negotiations and ransom efforts stalled or were rebuffed, the fatal deportations began.
