Wallenberg memorial

Raoul Wallenberg, Swedish diplomat in Budapest in the closing stages of World War 2, whose efforts helped save the lives of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis and their Hungarian allies in Nyilas (the Arrow Cross). I’d intended to post a photo of the Wallenberg monument on Holocaust Day (27 January) but didn’t have a decent photograph then. This was taken yesterday.

One of The Three Giraffes – sorry, The Three Graces – in Keillers Park has been given an eye, eyebrow and half a smiling mouth – so she’s smiling on at least one side of her face. Surely a gracious – or a giraffious smile.
