Rudolf Hendrich-Winter von Schwab gave a statement to the Swedish Government on July 2, 1964 about his imprisonment with Wallenberg in the special political prison in Warchne-Uralsk in the South Urals. Wallenberg told him that he was a Swede and had been imprisoned “since 1945 under Saotschno" (secret judgment from Moscow, no appeal)". Von Schwab met Wallenberg again in mid September of 1953 in a sick cell where Wallenberg stated that he had been operated on in "Magnitka" and had lain there for about eight weeks of convalescence alone.
