This chronicle of Raoul Wallenberg's sojourn to Budapest documents his activities at the Swedish Legation and his rescue efforts on behalf of the Jews of Budapest. It is a matter of record that Wallenberg's mission was designed by compassionate and desperate men in Sweden and elsewhere. Less well known is the fact that the misson was activated and sustained by various representatives of the Hungarian state apparatus whose cooperation Wallenberg regularly sought and often received. The author, one of the former hidden children in Hungary, believes that without the official and covert aid of such individuals, Wallenberg's activities would have been confined to a series of efforts with little or no success.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Handler seeks to explain how the young Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg was able to organize the protection and rescue of about one-third of Hungary's Jewish population in the last months of WW II. Wallenberg, who disappeared dear Debrecen in January 1945, remains an elusive figure due to lack of documentation about his life. Handler focuses instead on explaining the Hungarian political context that made teh rescue possible.... Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above."-Choice
