Sure, the mystery of what happened to WW2 Swedish ambassador Raoul Wallenberg in Soviet hands is an interesting historical side note, but does Obama really think he can get any help from Putin on even this?
US President Barack Obama will ask Moscow what happened to Swedish Holocaust hero Raoul Wallenberg after he was taken into Soviet custody and disappeared in 1945, Wallenberg’s family told Swedish media.
Wallenberg was posted as a Swedish diplomat to Nazi-occupied Budapest in July 1944 and rescued tens of thousands of Jews by issuing them protective passports in the final months of the Holocaust.
He went missing after his arrest by Soviet forces in Hungary on January 17, 1945.
Obama, who met with Wallenberg’s relatives during a visit to Stockholm on Wednesday, vowed to raise the issue with Russia on the sidelines of a G20 meeting in Saint Petersburg on Thursday and Friday, Wallenberg’s 92-year-old half-sister Nina Lagergren told Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet.
“‘I’m going to see Putin, and I plan to raise this with the Russians’ he told us,” Lagergren said after meeting the US leader in Stockholm’s Great Synagogue where he viewed Wallenberg artifacts, including his phone book, diary and Swedish passport.
Soviet and later Russian officials have claimed the Swede died of heart failure in Soviet custody on July 17, 1947, but have never produced conclusive proof.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he never asked. Even if he does, I won’t be surprised if Putin says he never did just to screw with him. And ummm… Syria?
