Raoul Wallenberg was an exceptional representative of Swedish commitment to human rights, and serves as a role model, not least for young people all over the world. The exhibition is a platform for dialogue and discussion regarding issues of tolerance, democracy and civil courage, and will tour Karlstad, Malmö and several other locations this year. The international version of the exhibition has so far toured Budapest, New York, Washington, Moscow and Geneva, and will continue on to Tel Aviv, Berlin and Canada in the near future.
The Swedish version of the exhibition is a collaboration between the Swedish Institute and the Living History Forum, and the exhibition and tour are produced by Mu AB in consultation with the secretariat for Raoul Wallenberg 2012. The exhibition has been made possible thanks to funding from the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.
The House of the Emigrants in Gothenburg is a migration centre for research and meetings between people. Its aim is to contribute to increased knowledge about migration, understanding and tolerance between different groups and nations.
