Raoul Wallenberg defied the Nazis and helped an astounding number of people avoid the death camps. Then he disappeared in the onslaught of the Russian Army. Here former NPR and ABC News correspondent Kati Marton gives us his story in a book that has become "the standard Wallenberg biography" (Washington Post). A fearless young Swede whose efforts saved as many as 100,000 Hungarian Jews from death at the hands of Adolf Eichmann, Wallenberg was one of the true heroes to emerge during the Nazi occupation of Europe.
"A fascinating story of an extraordinary man. Kati Marton's book should be read by anyone wishing to know what could have been done to save Jewish lives if more people had cared."—Elie Wiesel
