Raoul Wallenberg Canadian stamp

A new Canadian Raoul Wallenberg stamp has been delivered with a 1944  Raoul Wallenberg passport photo. The stamp includes an image from the Schutz-Pass, a protective pass, which Raoul Wallenberg handed out to people in the Jewish communit.

Steven Fletcher Canadian Minister of Transport said « I am pleased to inform the House that Raoul Wallenberg’s legacy will be honoured by Canada Post with a Raoul Wallenberg commemorative stamp.

Our government is proud to honour Canada’s first honorary citizen on the 100th year of his birth. The sacrifices he made to save tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Second World War will always be remembered. »
