Raoul Wallenberg: Angel of Rescue

Raoul Wallenberg: Angel of Rescue

By Harvey Rosenfeld

Prometheus, 1982, 261 pp.

The story of the courageous Swede who, with the benefit of diplomatic status in Hungary during World War II, saved many Jews from deportation and death. Wallenberg was arrested by the Russians in 1945, and the Soviet government has claimed that he died in 1947. The author cites the statements of several persons who believe that they saw him in one or another prison or labor camp in later years, but is unable to solve the mystery of whether Wallenberg is still alive.
