Raoul Wallenberg

The fate of Raoul Wallenberg is largely unknown after his arrest and deportation to Moscow in 1945. He has become a symbol for the fight against inhumanity. Yet there are few photographs and no film footage of him today. Through images from the media, this exhibition portrays the different identities he has been given over the last 60 years. The goal is to present a new depiction of him and to see the person beyond the myth.

Location: Statens ljud- och bildarkiv, Karlavägen 100.
