RAOUL WALLENBERG - the play

”The power of one”














SYNOPSIS



This play, close to the authentic, examines the power each person possesses, when she decides not only to bear witness, but to act. The evidence of that power are the tens of thousands he rescued from the camps, the estimated 100 000 Jews in Budapest that survived the Second World War – to a large extent thanks to this man.   Risking his own life, he went to Budapes with the mission to save as many jews as possible. So when jews in Budapest were marked with their yellow star he shielded them behind the blue and yellow of the Swedish flag. When they were sent on marches to their death, he followed with the food and water that gave them life. When they were hurded onto trains for the camps, he too climbed on board and pulled them of again.
