    • 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. It does not get too bogged down in dates and general war information. The book is very specific in its scope. It is very readable and engaging. The pictures throughout only add to the s [...]


    • 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.


    • When I checked this book out of the library from the Biography section, I didn't realize it was a YA book, written at a middle school level. Since I had it for a few weeks, I read it anyway. While the writing is diluted for the younger reader, I found the story of this brave Swedish civilian extraordinary during the months, weeks, and days before the end of WWII. Raoul Wallenberg, an architect, was enlisted to act on behalf of the United States government in Budapest as an informant. However, he [...]


    • 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.


    • 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.


    • Excellent book though likely written for more of a middle school reader. It does a generally nice job of explaining the situation in Hungary in World War 2. Though it doesn't go into a lot of details as to what happened with Wallenberg after the liberation of Hungary by the Russians, I did learn new information about sitings of Wallenberg well into the 1970s.
