In 2012 the opening of the new permanent exhibition of our museum "Raoul Wallenberg lives" took place. Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat and philanthropist who rescued around 100,000 Hungarian Jews from deportation and safe death in Nazi-occupied Budapest during the final months of the Second World War. After the occupation of Budapest by the Red Army Wallenberg was arrested on 17 January 1945 and brought to Moscow. Since then, every trace of him is lost. Despite the international movement that seeks to locate him, his fate remains a mystery that prevents anyone from accepting his death. In the year 1948 by the founder of our museum Dr. med. Rainer Hildebrandt's battle group against inhumanity was one of the organizations involved in this search, whose goal was to find out the truth about Wallenberg's fate. These investigations were supported by internationally recognized personalities, such as Albert Einstein and Andrei Sakharov.
