Raoul Wallenberg

The Holocaust

In 1935, Swede Raoul Wallenberg graduated from the University of Michigan. He returned to Sweden, but soon World War II erupted. Sweden remained neutral during the war, which enabled Wallenberg to travel as a salesman throughout Europe. Because of his brilliant command of languages and Swedish citizenship, Wallenberg was chosen to work for the U.S. War Refugee Board in Hungary. His mission was to rescue Jews in Budapest from the Nazis and their monstrous death camps. This volume's gripping narrative transports readers to the turbulent last days of the war, when Wallenberg's heroic actions helped to save thousands of Jews.
