Seven U.S. states will honor Holocaust-era hero Raoul Wallenberg on Thursday. Governors in Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey and West Virginia signed a proclamation making Oct. 5, 2006, a day to honor Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat in Budapest during World War II who risked his life to rescue tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis. New York celebrates the day every year.
