President Obama honors Raoul Wallenberg~ Turns out Raoul Wallenburg was born exactly 49 years before Barack Obama on August 4, 1912, she!


"Raoul Wallenberg was born on August 4, 1912, in Stockholm, Sweden."


"Having studied in the United States in the 1930s and having established himself in a business career in Sweden, he was recruited by the US War Refugee Board (WRB) in June 1944 to travel to Hungary. Given status as a diplomat by the Swedish legation, Wallenberg's task was to do what he could to assist and save Hungarian Jews.

Assigned as first secretary to the Swedish legation in Hungary, Wallenberg arrived in Budapest on July 9, 1944. Despite a complete lack of experience in diplomacy and clandestine operations, he led one of the most extensive and successful rescue efforts during the Holocaust. His work with the WRB and the World Jewish Congress prevented the deportation of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews to the Auschwitz-Birkenau killing center."



Mahalo for posting one last Post, she~
