We arrived at this quiet little quare off Nybroplan after visiting the nearby Berzelii Park. The square, which was created in 1987, is a tribute to Swedish businessman and diplomat Raoul Wallenberg (1912- ?) who is remembered for his efforts to rescue Hungarian Jews in Budapest during World War II. After the war, he was arrested for espionage by the Soviets and deported to Moscow where he later died in prison or was liquidated. The major feature of the square is the large memorial ‘To Raoul Wallenberg’ by Danish artist Kirsten Ortweds (2001). We had difficulty making sense of this monument consisting of an array of twelve bronze blobs (a herd of animals? sphinxes? humans?) and Wallenberg’s signature in bronze

A memorial sculpture installation honours a Swede who helped save thousands of Hungarian Jews during WWII. There is also a synagogue in the vicinity which we did not visit. The sculpture itself will have your imagination running rampant with various interpretations. It will not take long to visit here but the importance & impact make it a site to put on your things to see in Stockholm. If you get a chance to wander over to Strandvagen No. 1, you will be looking at the building from which Wallenberg was recruited.

Seemingly appropriate the monument to this man is in a city park near the synagogue. The memorial, like the man , is. not austentaious yet impressive

Memorial itself is strange - the blobs do not seem to represent anything. Raoul's signature is striking and the added granite ball make it a special place.

This square is named after the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg. It is located at Nybroplan next to the Berzelii Park.

Raoul Wallenberg saved tens of thousands Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during the Second World War.

On the square is a memorial, which consists of twelve sphinx-like sculptures cast in bronze, as well as Raoul Wallenberg's signature, also in bronze. This memorial was inaugurated in 2001 by King Carl XVI Gustaf.

In June 2006, another memorial was erected at the site, The Road. It consists of a stone globe with the inscription 'The road was often straight where Jews were taken away to be killed'. From the memorial, a paved road goes to the Stockholm Great Synagogue.

Must see for remembering this outstanding individual. We first came upon the lives and rags section with the write-up, then we got to the big ball of names. Worthy stops.

Located close to the synagogue and commemorating a local hero. There are many landmarks around and it's a great starting point for a walk along Strandvägen
