The 23rd Annual Raoul Wallenberg Dinner honors the memory of the Swedish diplomat who intervened to save thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish architect and businessman who served as Sweden's special envoy in Nazi-occupied Budapest from July to December, 1944. During that time, Wallenberg issued protective passports to Jewish persons and sheltered Jews in Swedish-territory buildings, saving tens of thousands of people from deportation to concentration camps. Wallenberg was detained by the Soviet Army in 1944, and reportedly died in a communist prison in 1947.
Today, he is celebrated by countries worldwide for his courageous humanitarian efforts.
