AbstractThis interview is in two parts; a one-on-one interview with Susan Tabor, and a recorded Raoul Walllenberg Committee Chapter meeting with presentations by Susan Tabor and Elenore Lester. Ms. Tabor's interview is a recollection of her experience in WWII. She reported the increasing restrictions from the Nazis before they started killing the Jewish people with means such as gas chambers, and her encounter with Raoul Wallenberg in Hungary. She stated that she felt as if Ally Forces did not act fast enough due to a number of factors. Ms. Tabor's presentation at the meeting is a recollection of her deportation from Hungary to the concentration camps as part of a death march to Austria, her time in the camp, and her eventual liberation. Ms. Lester's presentation is a recollection of her experiences as a journalist learning of the story of Raoul Wallenberg, interviewing several people who knew him, and telling his updated story to a modern American audience in the New York Times.
