Kayla Kaufman, mother of 2, grandmother of 7 and great grandmother of 3 recounts that
 she, her parents, her 2 sisters and brother were saved by Raoul Wallenberg. After escape from a Nazi slave labor camp, she found shelter in Budapest in one of the Swedish safe houses set up by Raoul Wallenberg. She says “he saved my life but what is etched even more deeply into my consciousness is the memory of having observed Wallenberg at a railroad depot in Budapest, saving Jews from deportation to the death camps. He was more than heroic; to me he symbolizes humanity at its best”.
