Interesting, though the cadence is sometimes a bit monotonous and not as memorable.

Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg led the effort to thwart Adolf Eichmann and to protect 100,000 Jews in Budapest, Hungary until the Soviets conquered the city in January 1945. After that, Wallenberg drove east to the Russian field headquarters to ask for help with the remaining Jews. He was instead arrested, and sent to Moscow, where he (probably) died in 1947.
