Wallenberg was a man who felt a connection to the Jewish people. He risked his life by providing 30 safe houses in the ghetto, following death marches to give victims aid, and providing food, protection, and shelter to the Jewish people. Later he was taken by the Soviets and never seen again. The Soviets deny any wrongdoing.
This collection was donated by Norman Carlson of the Wallenberg Committee and George Browder of the Goldbloom Memorial Fund Committee. This collection comprises recorded oral histories from two living history day events focused on interviewing Holocaust survivors. This collection comprises oral history recordings on broadcast video cassette, VHS cassette, and audio cassette. All of which has been digitized as MP4 files. This collection is arranged into two major series, Series A. Interview Recordings and Series B. Interview Transcripts. Both of these series are in separate arrangements, the first level being the committee that created the recordings and the sub series level by last name of interviewee in alphabetical order.
