This is actually very good for an introduction to the Wallenberg story of his saving of thousands of Jews during the early part of WW2 before the gates slammed shut. However it's very brief and there are many other more in depth books about him which I'd like to continue reading.

This is my book club book for March. As much as I’ve read about and even taught about the Holocaust, I had never heard of Raoul Wallenberg. While this book is meant for younger readers (think middle school), I thought it was a great introduction to Wallenberg and his work rescuing the Jews of Budapest, Hungary.

Inspiring. I found this in the juvenile section of the library and I wanted to read it as a potential biography for my children to use for school. It is an appropriately shorter account of the incredibly selfless life of Raoul Wallenburg.

This was such an embarrassing account of the Wallenberg affair. I doubt Linnea had in mind an audience of 8 year olds when she wrote it yet that's what it felt like to read this book. Further there are no references or bibliography. I doubt an effort was made to research events as thoroughly as a historical account warrants.
Just not good enough for Wallenberg's legacy.
