With thanks to the efforts of OMAH’s History Committee, we are pleased to share our virtual History Speakers Series.  Since you can’t come to the museum right now, we’re bringing the museum to you.

In November 2019, Fred Kallin presented the story of legendary hero Raoul Wallenberg, who foiled Nazi bureaucracy and saved tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from deportation to the death camps in 1944. He also told the story of his own father, Nils Kallin, who volunteered for the Swedish Diplomatic Service in Japan before and during WWII, and who is credited with saving many lives in Japanese prison camps.

Fred has a passion for sharing these two connected stories.

Please visit OMAH’s YouTube channel to hear Fred’s story and see his presentation.
