Name: Wallenberg: A Hero's Story
Product Code: DWHS
Description:Item Number: DWHS 
Product Detail:Richard Chamberlain plays Raoul Wallenberg, scion of a well-to-do family of Swedish bankers. Although he is a Christian "Aryan," Wallenberg despises the anti-Semitism of the Hitler regime. Not content with merely sitting back and viewing with alarm, Wallenberg vows to help as many Jewish victims of the Nazis as possible. Employed as a diplomat at the Swedish embassy in Budapest during World War II, Wallenberg is responsible for the escape of over 100,000 Hungarian Jews, thereby earning the enmity of Nazi functionary Adolph Eichmann .

Wallenberg himself falls victim to a "purge" of another variety at the end of the war, when he is arrested by the Russians and subsequently vanishes from the face of the Earth.

Filmed in England and Europe, "Wallenberg: A Hero's Story" was originally telecast in two parts on April 8 and 9, 1985. Winner of 4 Emmys.
