For many years the fate of Raoul Wallenberg, the young Swedish diplomat who risked his life time and again to save Jews in danger of falling into Nazi clutches, has remained shrouded in mystery. Did he die mysteriously at the hands of the Russians in the dying days of World War II? Did he languish in a prison camp hidden from any prying Western eyes? Most important, is he alive today? Lars G. Berg worked with Wallenberg at the Swedish Legation in Budapest in 1944. After the war, Berg wrote What Happened in Budapest, which was published in Swedish in 1949. Almost immediately the book disappeared from the bookshelves-another mystery. Now What Happened in Budapest has been published in English, so that Americans concerned with the Wallenberg case can get this insider's account of his final days in Budapest. Among other exciting episodes, Berg tells of the dinner party in his own home with Wallenberg and Adolf Eichmann at which the Swede warned Eichmann that his days were numbered. Also included is a new chapter by the internationally known journalist Anders Hasselbohm, updating us on the Wallenberg case after the war. Exciting reading, The Book That Disappeared: What Happened in Budapest is thankfully being read once more.
