Child of the Winds: My Mission with Raoul Wallenberg [*SIGNED*], Adachi, Agnes
1 Adachi, Agnes Child of the Winds: My Mission with Raoul Wallenberg [*SIGNED*]
Chicago Adams Press (c.1989) 0-9621930-0-3 / 9780962193002 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dj 
[slight bumping to top edges of boards, otherwise a nice clean copy with only minimal shelfwear; jacket very lightly rubbed and soiled, tiny tear at bottom front corner, label-removal shadow on rear panel]. (B&W photographs) SIGNED by the author on the ffep (signature only). Memoir by a woman who was (per her biography at the end of the book) "one of Mr. Wallenberg's associates in his rescue mission in Budapest, Hungary, in 1944"; after the war, she lectured on his work, and served as chairperson of the Greater New York Wallenberg Committee. As she explains in her Epilogue, in writing the book she hoped to contribute to Wallenberg's rescue from what she claimed was nearly 44 years of "captivity in Russia"; like a lot of other people, she obviously wasn't buying the official Soviet story of his death (or execution) in prison in 1947.

[slight bumping to corners of front cover]. Trade PB (maps, facsimiles) Memoir by a Polish Jew whose family was forced to flee Warsaw when the Nazis overran Poland in 1939.
