Since its inception in 1985, and among its many activities, the Raoul Wallenberg Unit has disseminated the story of Raoul Wallenberg and the many thousands of Jewish and others lives he saved during the Holocaust. This mission was assisted by Australia Post’s publication of 1,000 Raoul Wallenberg Stamp Sheets in 2010; Raoul Wallenberg becoming Australia’s first and only Honorary Citizen at a function at Government House, Canberra, in 2013; and the release of an Australia Post Raoul Wallenberg postage stamp in 2015.
