The benefits of living in a college town

Tonight I will be attending the Wallenburg Lecture.

The lecture and award honor Raoul Wallenburg. A U-M Graduate, Wallenberg was a member of Swedish Foreign Ministry and on a rescue mission to Budapest where his incomparable personal courage and ingenuity saved 100,000 Jewish lives. The Raoul Wallenberg Endowment was established at the U-M in 1985 to commemorate Wallenberg and to recognize other individuals whose own courageous actions exemplify Wallenberg’s extraordinary humanitarian accomplishments and values.

This years winner is Paul Rusesabagina, the hotel manager, whose story was told in Hotel Rwanda.

Updates tomorrow about the lecture

When I worked at the Holocaust museum in DC, it was located on Raoul Wallenberg Place.
