Wallenberg: The Incredible True Story of the Man Who Saved Thousands of Jews

The “fascinating story of an extraordinary man,” Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews from the horrors of the Holocaust (Elie Wiesel).

Raoul Wallenberg, one of the true heroes to emerge during the Nazi occupation of Europe, was a fearless Swede whose efforts saved countless people from certain death at the hands of Adolf Eichmann. He left a life of privilege and, against staggering odds, brought hope to those who had been abandoned by the rest of the world.
 
Working under diplomatic cover, Wallenberg worked tirelessly to rescue the persecuted Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary. Issuing life-saving protective passes, buying up dozens of buildings for Jews to live in—declaring them Swedish sovereign soil and thus untouchable—and craftily maneuvering through politics and prejudice, Wallenberg was a true savior to those who desperately needed one.
 
From the New York Times–bestselling author of The Great Escape: Nine Jews Who Fled Hitler and Changed the World, this is the gripping, passionately written biography of a courageous man who displayed extraordinary humanity during one of history’s darkest periods.
