Raoul Wallenberg's Residence
In 1944, he was sent by the Swedish government as a diplomat to Hungary and worked to save the lives of thousands of Jews, by providing them protected housing and Swedish passes.
In 1945, he was arrested by the Russians, who liberated Nazi-occupied Hungary. His whereabouts are still unknown.
