Wallenberg Place in London
It is wonderful that there is now a Wallenberg Place in London. It also happens to be very close to the Swedish embassy. It is the crescent fronting the Western Marble Arch Synagogue and the Montcalm Hotel in London’s West End that has been renamed Wallenberg Place in honour of the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved tens of thousands of Jews from the Nazis.
We are very grateful to the Westminster Council for approving the change of name for the area, that used to be part of Great Cumberland Place. So now we can both enjoy the Wallenberg monument in the crescent´s plaza and be proud to find a place that is specially dedicated to Wallenberg in London.
