Summary
  • Both a historical documentary and a revealing investigation, this film contains newly discovered archival material and exclusive interviews with witnesses from the former U.S.S.R. who claim to have seen Wallenberg in the Soviet Gulag years after the Soviets officially declared him dead. Produced in association with The Raoul Wallenberg Committee of the United States
  • Just before the liberation of Budapest by the Soviet Red Army, in 1945, Wallenberg disappeared. Arrested as a suspected spy, Wallenberg became one of the first victims of the Cold War and Stalin's paranoia. He was taken to the notorious Lubianka prison in Moscow, where he spent most of the next two and a half years. On July 17, 1947, in what became one of the biggest mysteries of the twentieth century, he vanished. Over the past half-century, the efforts of his powerful family and the Swedish and American governments failed to produce satisfactory answers to their queries about Wallenberg's fate
  • Searching for Wallenberg tells the legendary story of Raoul Wallenberg, who as a Swedish diplomat in Budapest in 1944, saved tens of thousands of Jews from Nazi deportations and certain death. He accomplished this through intimidation, manipulation and sheer courage
