New Documentary Film about Raoul Wallenberg; fiscal sponsorship of the IRWF
New York Times bestselling author John U. Bacon and two-time Emmy Award winning Producer Brian Mait are joining forces with Director Brad Rothschild and Executive Producer Alex Ruthizer to tell the larger than life story of Raoul Wallenberg, the young heroic Swedish, who in 1944 left his life of luxury to volunteer for a dangerous mission to save 100,000 Hungarian Jews from certain death.
The donors wishing to preserve Wallenberg’s legacy through this film are asked to make a 100% tax-deductible charitable donation to The IRWF, the film’s fundraising partner and a New York-based 501c(3).
