Campaign to clarify Wallenberg’s fate


Nation at a Glance. Argentina in brief

The Raoul Wallenberg International Foundation, an NGO founded in Argentina, has launched a worldwide campaign aimed at clarifying the fate of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved some 100,000 people from the Nazi holocaust by granting them Swedish passports. He disappeared in 1945 after being arrested by the Soviet army. The campaign to uncover the truth will aim to gather 100,000 signatures to be presented to the UN and the Russian government.
