29th Annual Wallenberg Lecture



Join the National Nordic Museum for the 29th Annual Raoul Wallenberg Lecture, honoring the memory of the Swedish diplomat who intervened to save thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps. This year's special guest speaker is Jill Savitt, President and CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, GA.

This lecture will address how the act of memorialization — of painful history and courageous resistance like Wallenberg's — is essential to addressing inequities in our time, and building a future that is just. It will take place from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm in Osberg Great Hall, followed by a reception.
