Learn more about Raoul Wallenberg and the stories of some of the many survivors he rescued



Through his heroic deeds during the Second World War, Raoul Wallenberg saved tens of thousands of people from the Nazi gas chambers---among them, thousands of children. His actions in Budapest are demonstration of his great compassion, vision, and determination in the face of insurmountable odds. At great personal risk, he protected innocent and defenseless men, women and children. But while he saved countless lives, Raoul Wallenberg himself suffered an unjust fate. Raoul Wallenberg’s mission to protect people who were victims of circumstances beyond their control is our source of inspiration.
