Letters and Dispatches 1924-1944: The Man Who Helped Save 100,000 Jews Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best way to hear the story of Raoul Wallenberg is through his own words. Put together from three different collections, Letters and Dispatches is the most thorough book of Wallenbergs writings and letters. With his disappearance behind the Iron Curtain in January of 1945, he became tragically mysterious. While the story of Wallenberg has been told many times over, the best way we can possibly understand and relate to him is through his written word, which Letters and Dispatches has in full.

Synopsis:

An extraordinarily thorough collection of the Swedish diplomat's last writings and dispatches before his tragic disappearance.

About the Author

Raoul Wallenberg was born in 1912 and grew up as part of a distinguished banking family in Sweden. At his grandfather's behest, he spent much of his young adulthood abroad and received a degree in architecture from the University of Michigan in 1935. After his grandfather's death in 1937, Wallenberg returned to Europe. He was approached in 1944 to oversee a rescue operation of Hungarian Jews being deported to the death camps by Adolf Eichmann. By the time of his arrest by the Soviet army on January 17, 1945, roughly six months later, Wallenberg had helped to save the lives of over 100,000 people.
