Harvard Hillel and The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy
are proud to present:
Director of the Lantos Foundation and the wife of the late Tom Lantos, the only Holocaust survivor to serve in the U.S. Congress and Founder of the Human Rights Caucus in the House of Representatives, who escaped Hungary with a ‘Wallenberg’ document.
Director of the Boston Chapter of the American Jewish Committee
This year marks the 100th birthday of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat who rescued tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews during World War II. As Sweden's envoy in Nazi-occupied Budapest, Wallenberg issued thousands of fake Swedish protective passes, thereby preventing the deportation of countless Hungarians to the death camps of Europe. Wallenberg was arrested by the Soviet Union in January 17 1945 and never heard from again. To celebrate international Human Rights Day and to commemorate Wallenberg's extraordinary life and legacy, the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and Harvard Hillel invite you to attend this program.
