Raoul Wallenberg: Between The Lines
Few stories are as compelling or as heartbreaking as that of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish Christian diplomat whose volunteer mission to Hungary saved some 100,000 Jews from certain Nazi extermination. The film examines the political background against which Wallenberg worked, including the failures and unwillingness of the United States to rescue Jews from German-occupied Europe. The film uses archival material to paint an intimate and accurate portrait of this extraordinary humanitarian. It also traces the events that led to his disappearance at the wars end. (HS+). Color & B/W. (90 min.)
