United States Congressman and Raoul Wallenberg rescued, Tom Lantos.

” In an age short of heroes, he [Raoul] is a genuine hero. He left the comfort and affluence, the safety and security of Stockholm, to go to Budapest to put his life on the line day in and day out for people he did not know, because he believed in justice and mercy. It is a great pleasure to salute Casa Argentina en Jerusalem, and its creation, the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, and commend you on the important work you do to keep the memory of this outstanding individual alive to show that there are heroes to illuminate our age.”
