The Wallenberg Legend

21-01-1948, ed. New Time

A new campaign of slander against the Soviet Union has been released in Sweden. Delving into the rubbish heap of anti-Soviet fabrications, the servitors of Swedish and foreign reactions have drgged out and revived the so-called Wallenberg affair.

The substance of the « affair » can be summoned up in a few words. During the height of the battle for the Hungarian capital, early in 1945, a member of the Swedish mission staff in Budapest named Raul Wallenberg was reported missing. Whether this reprensentive of a neutral state was killed by the frenzied Nazis or the bandits of Szalasy remained unknown.
