Raoul Wallenberg

Running time: 61'
Raoul Wallenberg
Production: 2014
An incredible – and, simultaneously, typical for many 20th century European citizens – story of Raoul Wallenberg, Swedish diplomat who, together with other employees of the Swedish embassy in Budapest, saved about 100 thousand Hungarian Jews from extermination. Ten thousand Hungarians were given Swedish passports, several hundred were employed in the embassy and accommodated in houses with political immunity. In January 1945 Wallenberg was arrested by the NKVD and accused of spying for the USA. The film tells his story, and the history of Nazi and Soviet crimes in an original, experimental form.
