Monday afternoon saw a special ceremony next to the American ambassador’s residence in Stockholm in honor of the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved the lives of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust.

The ceremony included the  inauguration of a horse chesnut tree and a plaque to honor the heroic deeds of Wallenberg, who was a diplomat at the Swedish Embassy in Budapest during the Second World War.

Among the speakers were US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, American Ambassador Mark Brzezinski, Per Westberg, speaker of the Swedish Parliament, and (designate) United Nations Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson.
