Raoul Wallenberg: To Me, There’s No Other Choice.
Learn the story behind the Swedish diplomat who single-handedly saved thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during World War II.
By issuing protective passports and buying buildings to establish as sovereign Swedish territory in Budapest, Wallenberg was able to shelter Jews during 1944 and save an estimated 15,000 lives in just six months. His life and legacy stand as a testament to moral courage and fortitude, especially in the tragedy of his ending.
From the Swedish Institute in Stockholm, this exhibit is generously sponsored locally by Barry Peterson & Darlene Peterson and EPrint, with additional support from the Swedish Institute.
