Remembering Raoul Wallenberg


This week, events have been taking place around the world to commemorate the Swedish diplomat and hero, Raoul Wallenberg. Wallenberg was working as a Swedish diplomat in Nazi-occupied Budapest, and managed to rescue thousands of Jews from deportation to death camps through the distribution of protection documents and by harboring Jews in buildings marked as Swedish territory. He went missing after his arrest by Soviet forces in Hungary on 17 January 1945.
