Raoul Wallenberg Memorial, Stockholm

This is an elegantly simple and yet powerful memorial to Raoul Wallenberg in Stockholm, Sweden. We didn't expect to see it, but once we found it, we couldn't stop thinking about it.

Written around this globe are 2 stunningly poignant sentences, repeated in 47 languages.

"The road was straight when Jews were deported to death. The road was winding, dangerous and full of obstacles when Jews were trying to escape from their murderers."

It just takes your breath away, doesn't it.
