Saturday...Featured Favorite Humanitarian #12

Per Anger

A Swedish Diplomat that aided Hungarian Jews from being deported in WWII by the Nazi's. Much like Oskar Schindler, Anger designed makeshift passports and certificates to protect Jews from incarceration and deportation. Although there was a question of legality of the documents, the government accepted them under the impression that these were Swedish citizens.
