President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Johannes Rau

” I greatly admire the efforts to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who in war-time Budapest saved the lives of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews. In contacts with the Russian politicians you constantly urge their responsibility to help find out the truth of what happened in the Soviet camps. In that endeavor I will gladly give you whatever support I can. I am fully aware that your invitation is a great honor.”
