After Raoul studied in the united states in the 1930s and establishing himself in a business career in Sweden, Raoul Wallenberg was recruited by the US war Refugee board (WRB). The Swedish foreign ministry sent Raoul Wallenberg to Budapest (Hungary) in July 1944. His task was to save 200,000 Hungarian Jews. Raoul Wallenberg was assigned as first secretary to the Swedish legation in Hungary. On July the 9,1944 Raoul arrived in Hungary to finish his mission. By saving the Jews, Raoul led one of the most extensive and successful rescue efforts during the holocaust. His work with the WRB and the world Jewish congress prevented the deportation of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews to the Auschwitz-birkenau killer centre.

To keep saving Jews Raoul started building "Swedish Houses". He built 30 houses, in the pest of the city. Raoul Wallenberg annouced the House as SWedish territory. There were living 15,000 legations in Budapest started to follow Raoul´s example, by issuing thier own protective passes. Other diplomats from other countries even opened thier own "protective house" for Jews. When the "death march" started raoul was in place all the time to hand out protective passes, food and medicine. He fighted until he managed to free those with Swedish passes. When the Nazis started to transport the Jews in full trains. Raoul even climed the train wagon. Ran along the wagon roofs and stuck lots of Protective passes down to the people inside, Raoul could jump of the the train unharmed, to stop the train and demand that the Jews with the passes leave the train together with him.
