Radio Sweden's Friday guest is a man who has plenty of courage. In fact he's co-written a courage calendar which honours 365 people who in someway or another have shown exceptional courage. Former Harvard professor Brian Palmer is a social anthropologist who is now a Swedish citizen and lecturers at Uppsala University. His Raoul Wallenberg calendar was released to tie in with last year's centerary celebration of the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews during World War II.
