Abstract: 
The celebrated case of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who is credited with saving tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis in World War II, is making its way through U.S. federal courts.  On February 2, 1984, an action was filed against the Soviet Union in the District Court for the District of Columbia by Guy von Dardel, Wallenberg's half-brother, and Sven Hagstromer, Wallenberg's legal guardian, seeking the return of Wallenberg from the Soviet Union or for damages based upon wrongful death.
