December 15, 1980
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Maurice Samuelson, London correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, is preparing a biography of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews in wartime Hungary before being arrested by the Russians. He is anxious to hear from people who knew Wallenberg either before or during the war. They are asked to write to him at 21 Greenfield Gardens, London NW2, England.

The book, commissioned by one of Britain’s leading publishing houses, will describe Wallenberg’s upbringing, his rescue exploits and his post-war fate. The author, a staff writer on the Financial Times, is a close friend of Wallenberg’s immediate family and his articles over the past four years helped to trigger the present wave of international interest in Wallenberg.
