Alan Bestic

Alan "Sammy" Bestic (11 July 1921 – 12 May 2014) was an Irish journalist. The author of several books, including ''The Importance of Being Irish'' (1969), he became best known for having ghostwritten the memoirs of Rudolf Vrba, who escaped from the Auschwitz concentration camp and co-wrote the Vrba–Wetzler report (1944).

Bestic originally wrote up Vrba's story in five installments for the ''Daily Herald'', beginning with the headline "I Warned the World of Eichmann's Murders" on 27 February 1961. The stories coincided with increased interest in the Holocaust because of the forthcoming trial in Jerusalem of Adolf Eichmann, who had been captured in Argentina in 1960. After the ''Daily Herald'' stories, Bestic ghostwrote Vrba's book, which was published with a joint byline as ''I Cannot Forgive'' (1963). Provided by Wikipedia
