Most Israelis are familiar with the tragic story of Raoul Wallenberg. A Swedish diplomat who saved over 100,000 Jews during the Holocaust, he was arrested by the Russians in 1945 and was never heard from again.

Far less well-known is Dimitar Peshev, who – along with the Bulgarian Church and a few other Righteous Among the Nations – is credited with saving all 50,000 of Bulgaria’s Jewish citizens.
