December 1944. In the blood-strewn suburbs of Budapest crazed Hungarian fascists join die-hard Nazis to slaughter Jews day and night. In less than six months, SS Colonel Adolf Eichmann sent over half a million Hungarians to Auschwitz. All that stands between him and Europe's last Jewish ghetto is an unarmed Swedish diplomatic envoy named Raoul Wallenberg. This is the stirring tale of how one man saved more than 100,000 Jews from extermination.

Excellent book about Raoul Wallenberg's incredible mission to save the last Jewish community left in Nazi Europe. He saved 100,000 Jews! Why doesn't everybody know about him? Several characters to follow so try to read on consecutive days. Wallenberg was steadfast in his rescue mission despite facing great danger. The last days of Budapest were horrific. The local Nazis made the German ones look reasonable...

Kershaw creates a diary of the destruction of the Hungarian Jews, the killers, the creators of the Final Solution to the Jewish Question, the victims & survivors, the few who attempted to save the Jews, those who did nothing.

NKVD interrogator of Wallenberg's associates:
Q:Who is he? Why is he here?
A: he came to save Jews.
Q: Lies! He was a spy for the Germans! Do you think anyone would stay here under siege for "humanitarian reasons" when they could have stayed in thier nice peaceful, neutral country?
