1. Raoul Wallenberg's Residence Marker
Inscription. Raoul Wallenberg, a "Righteous Among the Nations", lived in this building in 1936, while working in the Holland Bank office in Haifa's lower downtown area.

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.
