An Honorary Citizen of the U.S.A., and designated as one of the Righteous among the Nations by Israel, Raoul Wallenberg's heroism in Budapest at the height of the Holocaust saved countless lives, and ultimately cost him his own.

As the war drew to a close, his invaluable work almost PDF complete, Wallenberg voluntarily went to meet with the Soviet troops who were relieving the city.
