Exactly 70 years ago in 1945, Swedish businessman Raoul Wallenberg was abducted by Russian forces as they occupied Hungary. Wallenberg, who was not Jewish himself, saved tens of thousands of Jews in Budapest during the Holocaust. He was never heard from again following the abduction. Wallenberg’s niece, Louise von Dardel, speaks with VOI’s Judy Lash Balint about her family’s struggle to determine her uncle’s fate.
