Every age needs courageous individuals to stand up for those who have no voice. Steven Spielberg’s movie, “Schindler’s List,” made the world aware of the heroic efforts of a German businessman, Oskar Schindler, who saved more than 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust. By placing them on his employment list, Schindler was able to prevent them from being sent to the concentration camps.
Another businessman and Swedish ambassador, Raoul Wallenberg, is celebrated worldwide for his efforts to save up to 100,000 Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary from the Holocaust by issuing protective passports and designating local buildings as Swedish territory in which Jews could be sheltered. At the end of WWII, Ambassador Wallenberg was detained by the Soviet Union and eventually died in a Moscow prison.
Both Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg were designated as Righteous Among The Nations by Israel for their efforts to save Jews during the Holocaust.
