    Nordic Museum
    Register Now

    Join the Washington State Jewish Historical Society in supporting the Nordic Museum for the 23rd Annual Raoul Wallenberg Dinner, honoring the memory of the Swedish diplomat who intervened to save thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

    Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish architect and businessman, who served as Sweden's special envoy in Nazi-occupied Budapest from July to December, 1944. During that time, Wallenberg issued protective passports to Jewish persons and sheltered Jews in Swedish-territory buildings, saving tens of thousands of people from deportation to concentration camps. Wallenberg was detained by the Soviet Army in 1944, and reportedly died in a communist prison in 1947. Today, he is celebrated by countries worldwide for his courageous humanitarian efforts.

    Call for Archival Assistance for PBS Show
    Erin Ross, who works for the PBS documentary series hosted by Ann Curry, called We'll Meet Again – has reached out to Seattle Area Archivists for an archivist in Seattle to help with their research. 

    The series explores significant historic events that have shaped America and its citizens; told through the eyes of people who experienced them directly. Each episode introduces us to two individuals whose lives were impacted by history and we follow them on a journey as they look for a long-lost friend, family member or significant stranger.

    Our first season was shown on PBS in January/February this year, and can still be viewed on the link above, or on the channel's Facebook page. They focused of watershed events such as WWII, 9/11, and the Civil Rights Movement. As part of their second season, they are looking for an archivist in Seattle who would be able to help them on our search, by accessing records and helping to find contact details.
