I thought this was a highly readable book that was informative not only about Raoul Wallenberg but also about the history of Sweden and Hungary during World War II. It was aided by the beautiful photographs interspersed throughout.

Borden’s biography of the Swedish hero of Hungarian Jewry during World War II has all the hallmarks of excellent non-fiction: extensive research, lists of sources, and prose and visual materials that make a complicated chapter of history easily accessible.

Great biography of the Swedish diplomat who saved many Hungarian Jews from deportation to death camps 1944-45 and then was arrested and imprisoned by the Soviets.

I feel like I had heard the name at some time in my readings about Jews during WWII but could never have told his story. Borden's work is truly a tribute to an amazing person and who knew he did his undergraduate work at University of Michigan? Will have to seek out his statue the next time I visit
