Rescue & Escape –  Passage To Sweden tells the lesser-known story of events occurring in Scandinavia and Budapest during WWII. It focuses on the extraordinary heroic actions of ordinary people who saved the lives of thousands of Jews and fellow countrymen.  Special attention is paid to the Norwegian resistance, the citizens of Denmark, Raoul Wallenberg, and Count Folke Bernadotte, all of whom showed exemplary courage during the darkest of times. View the trailer on the film’s website.
