How did Raoul Wallenberg die?
The Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, known for rescuing tens of thousands of jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary, was detained by the Soviets in 1945 and subsequently disappeared. According to the official story, released by the Soviet Union in 1957, Wallenberg had died of a heart attack ten years earlier.
We are thrilled to welcome Nigel Bance, the British investigative journalist who was given unprecedented access to the account of what actually happened to Wallenberg. In Moscow, in 2002, Bance viewed the never-before-seen archives of Colonel General Ivan Serov, the notorious chief of the KGB. Inside was a veritable feast of WW2 and Cold War intelligence secrets including detail on Serov’s investigation into Wallenberg’s arrest, interrogation and subsequent execution.
Join us for this unique talk in the Stockholm bookshop, where Nigel Bance will discuss his recently published book The Liquidation of Raoul Wallenberg. In it, he meticulously pieces together every aspect on Serov’s secret investigation into Raoul Wallenberg’s death.
