Raoul Wallenberg

Year 2012 would mark the centenary anniversary of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg (b. 1912). This is the memorial to him and other "Righteous Among the Nations" http://bit.ly/nBBfIK in the rear courtyard of Budapest Great Synagogue for their efforts to rescue Hungarian Jews during World War II. Dohány utcai zsinagóga, part of the Jewish Ghetto in 1944, is said to be "the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world" now.
