In May 2017, the RWI-70 received a message from Swedish author and Wallenberg expert Gellert Kovacs. “I think I saw Raoul Wallenberg in a documentary about the Swedish Home Guard that aired last night on Swedish Television”. The next day, he sent RWI-70 the documentary and the moment we saw the footage, we realized Gellert was correct. It showed a Swedish Home Guard instructor overseeing soldiers’ training exercises at a shooting range during WWII. RWI-70 then contacted a producer with SVT (Björn Tunbäck). He managed to obtain the full-length clip from the Swedish program "Kulturnyheterna" (Culture News) and there was no doubt – we can now see the first ever moving images of Raoul Wallenberg.
