"Károly Szabó can be listed here as someone who had a significant role in making
contact 
(Wallenberg) with the Nazi apparatus. As it can be found in the literature,
Károly Szabó was the typewriter mechanics of the Swedish Embassy, who was a so-called
official of national defence during the more moderate Horthy-era, he played a determining
role among Wallenberg’s supporters in the autumn of 1944." .....

Wallenberg court process 1953  (Ember Maria 1994)
This people were arrested 1953 in Budapest. In prison tortured and forced to take on an obedient demeanor in court, accusing himself of crimes against
Wallenberg. Right before his death in 1953 Stalin was planning an anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish campaign in the USSR and another blood purge of
the government.
Wallenberg was arrested by the Soviet Red Army on January 17, 1945 as they entered Budapest, probably on suspicion of being a spy for the United
States. To this day, the U.S. government refuses to either confirm or deny this. He was taken to Lubyanka in Moscow with his driver Langfelder.
Wallenberg was then transferred to Lefortovo prison in another part of Moscow for two more years.
On February 6, 1957, under international pressure, the Soviets released a document they claimed to have found in their archives stating that "the
prisoner Wallenberg, who is known to you, died last night in his cell." The document was dated July 17, 1947, and was signed by Smoltsov, then head
of the Lubyanka prison infirmary. The note was addressed to Viktor Abakumov, the Soviet minister of state security. However, the Soviets did
not explain why they had not released this information earlier.

Synopse
This chronicle of Raoul Wallenberg's sojourn to Budapest documents his activities at the Swedish
Legation and his rescue efforts on behalf of the Jews of Budapest. It is a matter of record that Wallenberg's
mission was designed by compassionate and desperate men in Sweden and elsewhere. Less well known is the
fact that the misson was activated and sustained by various representatives of the Hungarian state apparatus
whose cooperation Wallenberg regularly sought and often received. The author, one of the former "hidden children" in Hungary, believes that without the official and covert aid of such individuals, Wallenberg's activities would have been confined to a series of efforts with little or no success.


"Handler seeks to explain how the young Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg was able to organize the protection and rescue of about one-third of Hungary's Jewish population in the last months of WW II. Wallenberg, who disappeared dear Debrecen in January 1945, remains an elusive figure due to lack of documentation about his life.
Handler focuses instead on explaining the Hungarian political context that made teh rescue possible....
