Korey, William

This case study, created for the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, marks the 50th anniversary of the 1944 disappearance into a Soviet gulag of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who was single-handedly responsible for saving the lives of 100,000 Hungarian Jews. After recounting the facts and the mystery surrounding this event, the study examines the ethical implications of the Russian government’s ongoing refusal to reveal the truth of what really happened—which continues to this day.
