Joel Brand was a sailor and odd-job man, originally from Transylvania but raised in Germany, who became known for his efforts during the Holocaust to save the Hungarian-Jewish community from deportation to the concentration camp at Auschwitz. He is remembered, in particular, for his negotiations with the German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer, Adolf Eichmann, to barter one million Jews for 10,000 trucks and other goods, a deal the Nazis called "Blut gegen Waren" ("blood for goods").
