"Let us remember that the Nazi officers were for the most part educated people, like you and me. Yet they were apparently at ease in their role. This should remind us how easy it is to blind ourselves to the suffering of fellow creatures, so long as our own comfort and security are not threatened.
Nazism was defeated about sixty years ago. But moral blindness is ever present. – Let us not close our eyes to crimes that shame us all. That is Raoul’s legacy.
Inspired by his actions, let us fight against exploitation and oppression and stand up for freedom and human dignity.
The battle for freedom and justice is never hopeless, but it is never finally won. Every morning we must wake up ready to fight again." - Minnesmärket över Raoul Wallenberg invigdes den 25 maj 2007 av Kofi Annan, f d generalsekreterare i FN. #charlottegyllenhammar #kofiannan #raolwallenberg #offentligkonst #kollektivaminnesbilder
