Editorial Reviews

NY Times Book Review
Rosenfeld has all the facts about this intriguing man, his great accomplishments, and the mystery that has surrounded his fate. This book is worth reading.
Library Journal
LJ's reviewer found this a "thorough, careful, and gripping recapitulation of Wallenberg's life" as it recounts his efforts to save Budapest Jews and his imprisonment in the Soviet Union (LJ 7/82). This updated edition includes previously sealed Soviet prison records and archives and information on the Wallenberg family's lawsuit against the former Soviet Union. The popularity of Schindler's List will no doubt draw readers to this equally moving story.
