“He, who saves one single person, could also save the whole world” – This is the talmudian inscription on the memorial by the Hungarian sculptor Tamas Szabo for the Swiss diplomat Carl Lutz in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. Carl Lutz worked from 1942 onwards in the Swiss embassy in Budapest, and together with the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg he helped 60.000 hungarian Jews to escape the holocaust. Some more photos from those times, including a portrait of Carl Lutz, can be found here.
