This is the extraordinary story of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews during WW II, presented through the personal experiences of four Canadians: Susan Vadnay of Montreal, Dr. Erwin Koranyi of Ottawa, and Maria Gomori of Winnipeg, all of whom survived Budapest’s Jewish ghetto, and David Matas, a Winnipeg-based human rights lawyer.

On the Buda side of the Danube, not far from the Hotel Gellert, there's a plaque marking - I believe, the residence of Mr Wallenberg.
