Foundation is pleased


It was a great pleasure to read the article ”Five area students receive top history honors” published on Joplin Independent on June 18th, and learning that an essay on Raoul Wallenberg took the tenth place in the seniors paper category at National History Day.

On behalf of the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation (IRWF), I wish to extend my warm congratulations and gratitude for emphasizing the subject.

The IRWF, with branches in New York, Buenos Aires and Jerusalem, is a public non-profit non-governmental organization. Its mission is to develop educational programs and public awareness campaigns based on the values of solidarity and civic courage, ethical cornerstones of the Saviors of the Holocaust.
