Looking for Wallenberg


Claim to Moscow

Argentine Baruch Tenembaum, head of the Wallenberg Foundation, will shortly start a worldwide tour, with a defiant stopover. He will seek an interview with Russian president, Vladimir Putin, whom he will ask for the solution of the case of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat that disappeared by the Soviet army in 1945, after saving the lives of 100.000 victims of the Nazi persecution. Tenembaum has also scheduled a presentation at the Vatican with the influential cardinal Renato Martino.
