Raoul Wallenberg is officially dead

In this news report, you can read about Raoul Wallenberg being officially declared to be dead : http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-37824692

Raoul Wallenberg was a famous Holocaust hero, who disappeared many years ago, after saving Hungarian Jews by issuing them passports to other countries.

Why did he disappear? No one knows.

The plight of the Hungarian Jews had first come to the attention of the world when, on April 7, 1944, two Jewish prisoners, Rudolf Vrba, aka Walter Rosenberg, and Alfred Wetzler, had managed to escape from Auschwitz-Birkenau, the infamous concentration camp where gas chambers were allegedly located.

After their escape, Vrba and Rosenberg both made their way back to Slovakia, where Vrba’s mother was still living,

On the same day that the last mass transport of Hungarian Jews arrived at Auschwitz, in 1944, Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat, was assigned to the Swedish legation in Budapest. Wallenberg was actually working as an agent for the American War Refugee Board, which President Franklin D. Roosevelt had established in January 1944 at the request of Henry Morgenthau, Jr., the Secretary of the Treasury.

Wallenberg saved thousands of Hungarian Jews by providing them with an illegal protective passport (Schutz-Pass) which identified them as Swedish subjects living in Hungary.

Wallenberg set up safe houses for Jewish refugees in Budapest which were paid for by the Swedish embassy. Some of the Jewish refugees were housed in the Swedish legation in Budapest.

As a result of Wallenberg’s efforts, as many as 200,000 Hungarian Jews were saved, including Tom Lantos, who emigrated to America after the war and subsequently became a US Congressman.

Wallenberg had last been seen on January 17, 1945, the day that Hungary was liberated by the Soviet Union.

Ten years later, the Soviet Union released the information that Wallenberg, who could speak Russian, had been arrested as a spy and had been imprisoned in a Soviet gulag; Wallenberg allegedly died in captivity.

The Hungarian government and Admiral Horthy had been informed that Vrba and Wetzler had proof that Jews were being gassed at Auschwitz.

Vrba, who had worked at the Judenrampe, the train platform where the Jews disembarked before the railroad line was extended, had counted the number of Jews who arrived at Birkenau and were then never seen again.

Two other prisoners, Arnost Rosin and Czeslaw Mordowicz, also escaped from Auschwitz at the end of May and wrote a report which told about the beginning of the “Hungarian Action” and the mass murder of the Jews.

Vrba, who worked at the Judenrampe, the train platform where the Jews disembarked before the railroad line was extended, had counted the number of Jews who arrived at Birkenau and were then never seen again. Vrba’s estimate was that 1,765,000 Jews had been gassed at Auschwitz-Birkenau by March 1944, just before he made his escape.

Two other prisoners, Arnost Rosin and Czeslaw Mordowicz, also escaped from Auschwitz at the end of May and wrote a report which told about the beginning of the “Hungarian Action” and the mass murder of the Jews.

  1. Here is an interesting document that was submitted by the Allied victors as evidence at the Nuremburg Tribunals;-

    TRANSLATION OF DOCUMENT 057-PS

    NATIONAL SOCIALISTIC GERMAN WORKERS PARTY

    Party-Chancellory
    The Head of the Party-Chancellory
    Fuehrer headquarters, the 30 May 1944
    [Fuehrerhauptquartier]

    SECRET

    [Receipt Stamp]
    CHANCELLORY ROSENBERG
    Dated 7 June 1944 Nr. 041 K
    (Marked) Shown to RL 7/6

    Circular Letter 125/44 Secret
    (not for publication)

    Concerns: Justice exercised by the people against Anglo-American murderers.

    In the last few weeks low-flying English and American flyers have repeatedly shot children playing in squares, women and children at work in the fields, peasants plowing, vehicles on the highways, trains, etc. from a low altitude with their aircraft guns [Bordwaffen], and have thus murdered defenseless civilians particularly women and children in the vilest manner.

    Several instances have occurred where members of the crews of such aircraft who have bailed out or have made forced landings were lynched on the spot immediately after capture by the populace which was incensed to the highest degree.

    No police measures or criminal proceedings were invoked against the German civilians who participated in these incidents.

    signed M. BORMANN.
    Distributed List:
    Members of the Executive Board of the NSDAP [Reichsleiter]
    Regional leaders [Gauleiter]
    Leaders of the incorporated and affiliated organizations of the Party [Verbandefuehrer]
    District leaders [Kreisleiter]….
    ………..

    The victorious Allies at Nuremburg were obviously so arrogant, conceited, and full of self-righteousness, that they went ahead and submitted Martin Bormann’s letter to the tribunal, not realizing that future generations studying these documents would not view this document as evidence of war crimes against the Nazis – but in fact, quite the reverse.

    To most reasonable today, the despicable war crimes were being committed by the Allied airman; and the local civilians – in their understandable rage and frustration – meted out instant justice to the criminals.

  2. Question for Further Glory;-

    As a young child in 1945, can you tell us if you have any memories of “VE Day” and “VJ Day” while you were growing up in Missouri?

    I’m told that in Britain on VE Day, there was almost riotous rejoicing in the streets of London, and many adults allowed themselves to abandon themselves to drink and partying. But I suspect a lot of this outburst of happiness was due to the enormous relief that the war in Europe was finally over, and people no longer had to live in fear and uncertainty, and thus could look forward to an end to all the wartime restrictions.

    But the real mood of the country was more accurately expressed in a full page cartoon in one of the daily newspapers, which showed a battered and bandaged British soldier climbing over a pile of wartime debris, and thrusting a wreath forward with the words Victory and Peace in Europe written on the label. But his face glares at the readers – and tells them accusingly “Here you are – DON’T LOSE IT AGAIN”.

    By contrast, VJ Day was very low key – as if the nation had already moved on from the war, and all the pent-up rejoicing and emotion had dissipated. It was really the dropping of the Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki that left everyone shocked.

    • You wrote: “As a young child in 1945, can you tell us if you have any memories of “VE Day” and “VJ Day” while you were growing up in Missouri?”

      Missouri was a state where at least half of the people were German-American. My great-grandfather had come to Missouri from Germany. My grandfather could barely speak English; he spoke German.

      VE day was the celebration of the defeat of Germany. German-Americans did not rejoice. VJ day came later when Japan was defeated.

      German-American soldiers were sent to Japan, never to fight in Germany because they would have been shooting their close relatives. My father’s brother was fighting in Japan, so we were still worried about him.
