Raoul Wallenberg – To me there’s no other choice

Raoul Wallenberg – To me there’s no other choice

An exhibition about moral courage, tolerance and personal responsibility

On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January 2016, the Jewish Cultural Center KEDEM and the Embassy of Sweden in Chisinau welcomes you to the exhibition “Raoul Wallenberg – To me there’s no other choice”.

We welcome the decision by the Moldovan Parliament to establish January 27th as the national day of remembrance of Holocaust victims, says Ambassador of Sweden to the Republic of Moldova, Signe Burgstaller. Everyone has a responsibility to remember the victims of those times of hatred, violence and death and to ensure it never happens again. Raoul Wallenberg can serve as an example of moral courage and inspire us to act when faced with intolerance and hatred.

Wallenberg is one of the most famous and admired Swedes in the world. Armed with his bravery and moral courage, he saved tens of thousands of Jews from the Holocaust in Budapest during the World War II. This exhibition tells the story of Raoul Wallenberg, from his actions of assisting others during the World War II to his ultimate disappearance in 1945.

The exhibition is organized by KEDEM and the Embassy of Sweden in Chisinau, with the financial support of the Swedish Institute in Stockholm, the Embassy of Sweden in Chisinau and KEDEM.
