Romanian President, Traian Basescu, announced today the bestowal of the Order of Merit upon the Argentinian citizen Baruch Tenenbaum, founder of the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.

According to the announcement the award is given “in appreciation for the strong moral and professionalism he has shown throughout his career, by his decisive contribution to promote the memory of the Holocaust and the Jewish heritage, as well as the preservation of the interfaith dialogue.”

The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation is a global-reach NGO that develops educational programs and public awareness campaigns based on the values of solidarity and civic courage, ethical cornerstones of the Saviors of the Holocaust.
