Summary
"One person can make a difference in the world. During the final years of World War II, the Nazis occupied Hungary. They sent hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews to concentration camps. The remaining Jew, knowing they would be next, desperately begged other countries for help. Raoul Wallenberg was a good speaker and a good listener. He was brave and confident. He knew five different languages. And when the Swedish government needed a diplomat to send to Hungary, Raoul was the man for the job. With his official-looking schutzpasse, documents that promised Swedish protection to the people who carried them, Raoul boldly saved thousands of lives. He was a hero. Today, Raoul Wallenberg's fate remains unknown but his name is one for the world to remember."--Dustjacket flap
