14. Fight about the Validity of the « Refuge Passes »

There were many attacks made on the „Refuge Houses“ resulting in Jewish deaths. On hearing about such attacks, Wallenberg made his way to the houses. His presence alone stopped the Arrow Cross gangs. There were many times he didn´t get there on time. How important his personal presence was, is depicted in the following:

« Wallenberg made me feel human again. For the first time I had hope. In fact, I think that everyone felt different after his first visit. He showed us that we were not animals, that someone cared about us. The most important factor was he came in person. For us, he took a standing, for every single one of us.“
