Two members of the Ager Association, Doug Pearson, and Tim Hirsch, will present a program about Raoul Wallenberg, a true hero of World War II. Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat in Hungary during the war, saved the lives of nearly 100,000 Jews during a six month period in 1944. A graduate of the University of Michigan in architecture, Wallenberg found his way into the diplomatic post after he returned to Sweden.

Stories of heroes are interesting to all of us, and this man’s amazing work on behalf of humanity is, truly, outstanding. You won’t want to miss this story of bravery against all odds.

The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served following the program.
