While filmgoers in the 1990s were perhaps more familiar with the exploits of Oskar Schindler, a far more impressive humanitarian effort was mounted by the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg who, while he was stationed in Nazi-occupied Hungary late in 1944, arranged for almost 100,000 Jews to find safety. When the Russian army liberated Hungary, Wallenberg was arrested and taken away. The details of what happened to him after that are shrouded in mystery, though he is generally believed to have perished in a Soviet prison in 1947. This Soviet-made documentary explores many mysteries surrounding his arrest and disappearance, including claims that Leonid Brezhnev may have been involved in it, but it provides few answers. Even in this sketchy and sometimes crudely made documentary, interviews with some of those Wallenberg saved are reportedly quite moving.
