- Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat who is credited with saving the lives of 20,000 Jews during the war by providing safe houses and fake Swedish ID papers. He disappeared after the war and it is assumed that he died in a Soviet labor camp. By all accounts, he was a very brave man. This sculpture was put up in 1987 and it is here because the Communist authorities insisted that it was not to be placed in the centre of the city.
