Five U.S. states honored Holocaust hero Raoul Wallenberg. Michigan, Connecticut, Nebraska and Nevada joined New York on Monday in honoring Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved tens of thousands of Jews in Hungary during World War II. Wallenberg, who disappeared while in Soviet captivity after the war, was made an honorary U.S. citizen in 1981.
