To any person or entity that will provide credible information leading to the scientific identification and repatriation of Raoul Wallenberg and Vilmos Langfelder back home:
The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation (IRWF), a global-reach NGO devoted to research, preserve and divulge the legacy of Raoul Wallenberg and of many other saviors, has instituted a 100,000 Euros reward to any person or entity coming forward with reliable information concerning the whereabouts of Raoul Wallenberg and Vilmos Langfelder.
Wallenberg, the young Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of innocents lives in Budapest during the Holocaust, was arrested by the Soviet forces back on January 17th., 1945, together with his driver, Vilmos Langfelder. Ever since, their fate and whereabouts are shrouded in mystery.
For this specific reward, the IRWF has secured a special earmarked donation from a donor who requires remaining anonymous.
The underlying purpose of this campaign is to bring closure to this tragic event which remains as an open wound even today, 67 years later. This year, the world marks Raoul Wallenberg s 100th birthday.
Based on the information available, the IRWF is convinced that if Wallenberg and Langfelder had indeed been murdered while in Soviet custody, clear historical records should be available but are still inaccessible due to the Russian authorities\' refusal to allow unfettered access to scholars and researchers.
The reward will be given at the sole discretion of the IRWF, after having been satisfied all the pertinent conditions and requirements, including positive DNA identification of both Raoul Wallenberg and Vilmos Langfelder and their repatriation to Sweden.
"Raoul saved scores of lives but could not save himself. To shed definitive light on his fate is the least we can do those committed to his legacy, an exemplary life at the service of the values of solidarity and civic courage", Eduardo Eurnekian and Baruch Tenembaum, Chairman and Founder respectively of the IRWF, stated.
This campaing follows previous worldwide intitiatives launched by the IRWF, such as the the gathering of more than 20,000 signatures for a petition to the Russian authorities to provide answers as to Wallenberg s fate and whereabouts, or the request to Heads of State to support the quest for information .
Any information received will be treated in utmost confidentiality. The IRWF reserves the right to revert to incoming enquiries at its sole discretion. The public is requested to refrain from sending general or unsubstantiated information. Only solid pieces of information shall be considered.
