you ever heard of Raoul Wallenberg? If not, you should really read
about this remarkable man. Wallenberg was the Swedish Ambassador
in Hungary during the time of the Holocaust. One of the Nazis' goals
was to kill all the Jews in Hungary to make the country totally Jew free.
But Wallenberg was determined not to let that happen. He devised
a plan to grant Swedish citizenship to as many Jews as possible in order
to protect them. As time for rescuing grew short, Wallenberg had
to come up with more and more ways to save the Jews of Budapest.
Although no one really knows how many Jews he saved, it is estimated to
be in the thousands. Some say it it closer to 100,000 lives saved
by the actions of this courageous man. If you want to read about
a real hero, read about the man who took it upon himself to save a civilization.
