This parkland is named in honor of Raoul Gustav Wallenberg (1912-1947), a Swedish diplomat who is credited with saving tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from likely extermination by the Nazis during World War II.
Wallenberg grew up in one of Sweden’s wealthiest and most prominent families. As a student in Sweden and France, Wallenberg learned Swedish, English, German, French, and Russian language skills that later aided him in his humanitarian mission.
