Overview of A Man for All Connections: Raoul Wallenberg and the Hungarian State Apparatus, 1944-1945

This chronicle of Raoul Wallenberg's sojourn to Budapest documents his activities at the Swedish Legation and his rescue efforts on behalf of the Jews of Budapest. It is a matter of record that Wallenberg's mission was designed by compassionate and desperate men in Sweden and elsewhere. Less well known is the fact that the misson was activated and sustained by various representatives of the Hungarian state apparatus whose cooperation Wallenberg regularly sought and often received. The author, one of the former hidden children in Hungary, believes that without the official and covert aid of such individuals, Wallenberg's activities would have been confined to a series of efforts with little or no success.

Jewish Book World

New biography of the most famous of Righteous Gentiles: Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who sought to rescue a remnant of Hungarian Jewry during the Holocaust's last phase. Handler makes much use of recent Hungarian publications on Wallenberg and also does an admirable job of placing Wallenberg's mission into its historical context.

Booknews

Then but a child, Handler (history, U. of Miami) was one of the Budapest Jews hidden by Wallenberg during the last months of World War II when the Nazis of Hungary were rushing to complete their Final Solution. Inspired by his memory and others' stories of Wallenberg, a Swede, as a larger-than-life hero, and by his recent memoirs of the period, he has investigated the man, his work, his motivations, his support, and his mysterious disappearance in January 1945. Among the surprises was that in addition to being supported by humanitarians in Sweden and other countries, he was also secretly aided by the factions of the Hungarian government as their contribution to resistance.
