The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, will bestow the ” Great Medal of Honor Raoul Wallenberg” to José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, President of the Spanish Government.
This decision was made, considering the fact that Zapatero is the first President of the Spanish Government to become a member of the Wallenberg Foundation, for his continuous actions in favour of the reconciliation and intercultural dialogue, as well as the decision of Spain’s Cabinet to establish, in that country , the 27th. of January as the Official Memorial Day of the Holocaust and the Prevention of Crimes against Humanity.
The medal will be awarded in Madrid, in a nearby date yet to be determined.
