Every so often we read an article about Raoul Wallenberg and are reminded of a man who single-handedly saved more than 100,000 Jews from death at the hands of the Nazis in World War II Europe.
No person in history saved so many lives by his individual efforts. Raoul Wallenberg was internationally honored for his heroic acts in the struggle for human rights.
On Jan. 17, 1945, this Swedish diplomat was detained by Soviet soldiers and disappeared from world view. Wallenberg’s fate and the location of his grave remain a mystery to this day.Diplomatic efforts should be redoubled to locate the Wallenberg grave and bring his body home to Sweden for honorable burial, which he so richly deserves.We should make our views known to those who represent us in Congress.
