Raoul Wallenberg: He saved thousands of Jews, but his fate remains unknown

2012-10-01

FRANK VAJDA (Australia)
"People whose loved ones die in a war, or disappear feel a degree of reassurance once they know where their loved ones are buried and we don't know. We don't know the cause of death, time of death and where his remains are.”

Over the years, Frank Vajda has sent letters and made visitations to several government offices, to ask about the fate of Wallenberg.  

During a conference at Rome's St. Bridget Church, he talked about how this year, the diplomat would have turned 100 years old. Vajda knows that the possibility of him being alive, is basically none.  But still he wants to know what exactly happened, since the theories are endless.

FRANK VAJDA (Australia)
"Isolated prisoner or possibly put in a psychiatric hospital, possibly murdered, made into solitary confinement on his own.”

As Jews were being sent to concentration camps, Wallenberg saved many lives by prevented their deportation, between 1944 and 1945. During that same time the St. Bridget Catholic Church in Rome, which is run by Swedish nuns, also gave refuge to persecuted Jews.

Now Vajda, is a practicing doctor in Australia. He got married in Sweden, and Wallenberg's family attended his wedding. He says he tries to honor the man who saved him by focusing on the positive, but the pain is still quite alive.

FRANK VAJDA (Australia)
"I'm trying to focus on justice, peace, love and charity rather than blood, gore and vengeance, but I haven't forgiven and I haven't forgotten.”

The International Wallenberg Foundation is offering half a million dollars for credible information on the fate of Wallenberg, including the whereabouts of his remains.
