Charter of the Association
To keep alive, through the story of their individual fate , and the values represented by the work of Raoul Wallenberg and other life-savers, in the light of their civic courage and humanity.

The founding members of the House of Raoul Wallenberg – the House of Humanity are driven by the intention to create and programme; an institution that considers tolerance, civil courage, the exercise of democratic rights and the acceptance of the ‘Other’ as important social values, through the examples of Raoul Wallenberg and other human rescuers throughout history.
We want to raise awareness of the civic courage, tolerance, moral and ethical example of Raoul Wallenberg and other human rescuers throughout society, in higher education and in other school activities.
We want to give young people the opportunity to acquire a vision in which an inner moral compass, a commitment to humanist values, ensures democratic cooperation and coexistence in society as a whole.
We want to create an opportunity for social dialogue: on social, ethical and moral issues.
We illuminate and place the period of post Enlightenment of Hungarian history up to 1945 into an international perspective.
We aim to bear witness to the historical events of 1944-45 as an integral part of Hungarian history.
