Raoul Wallenberg exhibition

Swedish businessman Raoul Wallenberg helped save tens of thousands of Jews from the holocaust in Budapest. His humanitarian achievements live on, reminding us to keep fighting against racism. In Sweden, 27 August has been designated Raoul Wallenberg Day, a national day for humanity and moral courage.

The roller banner exhibition ‘Raoul Wallenberg – To me there’s no other choice’ describes the Swedish diplomat’s childhood and education, his deeds and his mysterious disappearance in 1945. It also presents some of the people who survived thanks to Raoul Wallenberg. The exhibition forms a platform for dialogue on issues concerning tolerance, democracy and personal courage.

The main target groups are students and teachers as well as media.
