Text by: Per Wastberg
Description of the monument:
Granite globe of about 1.2 m in height. On the side toward the bay, the stone bears the inscription Raoul Wallenberg torg; on the opposite side, leading to the Holocaust Monument, is found, Aaron Isaacs Grand. The globe contains the line: “The road was straight, when Jews were deported to death. The road was winding, dangerous and full of obstacles, when Jews were trying to escape from the murderers”. This sentence appears first in Swedish, followed by English and then in 22 languages, beginning with Polish, given that this is the language of the largest group of victims, followed by the other 20 languages of the countries from which the victims originated.
The 22 translations underscore the diversity of European Jewry that the Nazis tried to subsume into one homogeneous group.
The text makes also clear that it was indeed dangerous and difficult for Jews to escape Nazi persecution, as it was dangerous for those, like Wallenberg, who tried to help them.

Name: Raoul Wallenberg – One man can make a difference
Description: The exhibition tells how the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg saved the lives of thousands of Jews in Budapest during the final stage of the Nazi occupation of Hungary in 1944-45. Through pictures, sound, light and objects, Wallenberg’s life is evoked, from his early childhood to the repercussion of his disappearance in 1945. Raoul Wallenberg – One man can make a difference is an excellent platform for a further discussion on understanding and civic courage.
