Wallenberg´s day in Michigan
The state of Michigan proclaimed October 5th 2010 as ”Raoul Wallenberg Day,”
following a campaign launched by the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. This marks the fifth year that the state has supported the Wallenberg Foundation’s initiative.
”I encourage all citizens to learn from the example of Raoul Wallenberg and to work towards eradicating traces of prejudice, intolerance and cultural insensitivity in our state,” proclaims the Governor of Michigan, Jennifer M.
It is with the assistance of states like Michigan, which continues to lend its support to our initiative, that we are able to develop more efficient public awareness and educational programs.
Raoul Wallenberg spent four years studying in Ann Arbor, at the University of Michigan. If he were alive today, he would surely appreciate their support.
