Nina Lagergren speaks during a ceremony to posthumously present a Congressional Gold Medal to her half brother, Raoul Wallenberg, in honor of his heroism during the Holocaust on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, July 9, 2014. Wallenberg's work as Sweden's envoy in Budapest in 1944 was a cover for a humanitarian mission as secret emissary of the U.S. War Refugee Board, created in an attempt to stem the annihilation of Europe's Jews. He saved at least 20,000 Jews in Budapest by giving them Swedish travel documents or moving them to safe houses and is also credited with dissuading German officers from massacring the 70,000 inhabitants of the city's ghetto.
