Whatever Happened to Raoul Wallenberg?
The story of Holocaust hero Raoul Wallenberg and the author's efforts to rescue him from Soviet Union imprisonment
It is widely known that the Swedish diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg, worked in Budapest, Hungary, during WWII to save the lives of over 100,000 Jews from Nazi extermination. But what happened after the hero disappeared in 1946? This never-before told story reveals Wallenberg's detention by the Russians and relates the legal and diplomatic efforts of the author, Morris Wolff, and others to gain (or impede) his release from the Soviet Union. Playing a role in the saga are such participants as Chief Justice John Roberts, President Richard Nixon, President Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger and Leonid Brezhnev. Attorney Wolff's efforts to gain justice for the kidnapped Swedish hero, which began in 1983, continue to this day.
Morris Wolff gives a unique account of Raoul Wallenberg, who saved tens of thousands of lives and became one of the true heroes of the 20th century. For nearly thirty years, Wolff has been unflagging in his efforts to uncover Wallenberg's fate, and this fascinating and personal book will inspire readers with a story that has captured its author's heart for decades.
