Fight for the Truth
Trying to find out the real mystery behind Raoul Wallenberg
International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation
February 17, 2006.
The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation reaches out to its some
200 members, who include Heads of State and Nobel Laureates and to all
individuals urging them to send letters to the President of Russia, Vladimir
Vladimirovich Putin, asking him to resolve Raoul Wallenberg’s mystery.
Within a few weeks, copies of letters sent to the office in Russia have
been pouring in and all have been diplomatic and forthright.
a Swedish diplomat, went to Budapest, Hungary during the Second World War to
save the lives that were destined for concentration camps under Hitler’s
control. On January 17th,
1945, after being taken into Soviet custody, Raoul Wallenberg vanished.
No one knows what happened to him and the means behind which to find
him are not being met. Raoul
Wallenberg was said to have saved one hundred thousand lives.
find it incomprehensible that the archives of the Soviet army would not
still contain a record of the events that followed [Wallenberg’s] arrest,”
writes Richard J. Roberts, chief scientific officer of New England Bio Labs,
1993 Nobel Laureate for Physiology or Medicine, and also a member of the IRWF.
“I would urge you, in the interests of settling this matter once and
for all, to urge your colleagues with access to those archives to find the
relevant documents, make them publicly available, and if Mr. Wallenberg is
still alive, to reunite him with his family.”
Zhores Alferov, Nobel Laureate of Physics in 2000, and also a member of the
International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, wrote, “According to the report,
expressing the Russian side of the [Swedish-Russian working group of 1991],
‘the possibility of investigating some new witnesses, who might have had
useful information concerning Raoul Wallenberg, actually came to nothing.
The publication of documents, that might in principle have opened up
new opportunities, is presented by the group as extremely improbable.’ Yet
people abroad believe that some other documents, which could shed light to the
fate of the Swedish diplomat, can be disclosed.”
these documents really do exist, where are they?
Why are they not being disclosed?
Baruch Tenembaum, Founder of the International Raoul Wallenberg
Foundation would like to stress to its members and the President of Russia
that “we are not seeking to place blame on anyone for Wallenberg’s
disappearance. We have but one
goal—to bring Raoul home safely, to his family and to his people.”
The secret behind his disappearance may never be revealed, however, the
Foundation promises to never stop trying.
And until more is revealed, there is always the help of the citizens
and members to help the IRWF towards its goal.
the last few months the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation launched
a worldwide campaign seeking answers into the disappearance of Raoul
Wallenberg. The Foundation
started the Signature Campaign, in hopes to obtain 100,000 signatures, one for
each of the lives Wallenberg saved and present them to the UN and the
President of Russia asking them to provide any documentation as to
Wallenberg’s whereabouts. More
than 20,000 people from over 30 countries have signed.
campaign website offers a link entitled, ‘Send a letter to Mr. Putin!’
which guides our members as well as online onlookers to write the President of
Russia concerning Wallenberg’s return.
Along with the fax number and address of the President, the web page
also provides a link to Putin’s personal website followed by a possible
draft of what to send. To sign
