Wallenberg Memorial: Raoul, We Never Even Thanked You…

August 4, 2019 , 5:00 pm


1944, the depths of the Holocaust: Why would a Swedish diplomat care about the doomed Jews of Hungary? And yet, Raoul Wallenberg risked it all time and again to save thousands of us. And then, as the Third Reich crashed down, the Soviets arrested this greatest rescuer of all time. His fate is lost in the darkness of the gulags. Join us to commemorate his memory, his legacy, his greatness that lives on to inspire. We will hear from survivors, a representative of the Swedish government and our own mayor and clergy. Wherever there is courage to stand up for the other, Raoul Wallenberg lives. A moment of unity for all faiths- join us at the sculpture Courage and Compassion erected in his memory.
