Happy Birthday, Raoul Wallenberg

Raoul Wallenberg Memorial, Stockholm, August 2012

Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish architect and diplomat who helped rescue tens of thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during World War II, would have been 101 today. Some are taken from us much too soon.

Wallenbery was just 34 when he disappeared and was later reported to have died in a Soviet KGB prison on July 17, 1947. The memorial pictured above, taken last August, is in Stockholm’s Raoul Wallenbergs Torg, or Square.
