Thursday, June 7, 2018

Join the Nordic Museum for the 23rd Annual Raoul Wallenberg Dinner, honoring the memory of the Swedish diplomat who intervened to save thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish architect and businessman, who served as Sweden's special envoy in Nazi-occupied Budapest from July to December, 1944.During that time, Wallenberg issued protective passports to Jewish persons as well as sheltered Jews in Swedish-territory buildings, saving tens of thousands of people from deportation to concentration camps. Wallenberg was detained by the Red Army in 1944, and reportedly died in a communist prison in 1947. Today, he is celebrated by countries worldwide for his courageous humanitarian efforts.
