Raoul Wallenberg

Michigan Class of 1935 ~ Hero of the Holocaust

Join Law Professor Howard Bromberg in his exploration of the life and virtues of Raoul Wallenberg. Born in 1912 to an affluent family near Stockholm, Wallenberg's father died of cancer 3 months before his birth. He was raised by his grandmother and mother, who later remarried. After high school and compulsory military service in Sweden, he travelled to the US to study Architecture at Michigan. A few years after graduating near the top of his class, he was sent to Hungary as a Swedish diplomat to attempt to counter the massive deportation of Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz. He rapidly demonstrated creativity and resourcefulness in accomplishing his mission. Stories of his exploits have become legendary in the history of Holocaust scholarship, and will be covered in detail by professor Bromberg. The University of Michigan awards a Wallenberg Fellowship each year to a graduating senior committed to service and the public good.
