Raoul Wallenberg Centennial Celebration Commission

The Raoul Wallenberg Centennial Celebration Commission is an effort spearheaded by The Friedlander Group to recognize the heroism and accomplishments shown by Raoul Wallenberg in honor of the centennial of his birth.

THE COMMISSION

Throughout 2012-2013, the Raoul Wallenberg Centennial Celebration Commission worked on a national campaign to highlight the incredible heroism exhibited by Raoul Wallenberg. The movement included the ceremonial naming of public streets and other venues and a Congressional Gold Medal campaign to commemorate the 100th birthday of Raoul Wallenberg and in turn, commemorate his actions and heroism.

We are proud to announce that

Raoul Wallenberg Centennial Celebration Act has passed the House and Senate; was enacted and signed by President Obama.
