Lauer was the director of a Swedish import and export company whose specialty was food and delicacies. Because Wallenberg’s language skills were second to none, and he had free range of travel, Raoul was the ideal business partner for Lauer. Through his travel agenda, Wallenberg visited and learned the customs of many European countries including Nazi-occupied France and Germany. He even made regular trips to visit with Lauer’s parents who resided in Budapest, Hungary. During the time in which the Western world was suddenly becoming aware of the Holocaust in 1944, Wallenberg’s copious business connections ultimately led him and Lauer to be chosen by the Swedish Red Cross to rescue the Jews of Hungary. Lauer persisted in his argument that Raoul be the leader of this mission, and eventually so, he became.

  • Cannabis Paradox

    Ironically it was deemed to be the other way around. The United States is still living in an era of prohibition. However, alcohol is not the substance being prohibited to the people, today it is cannabis. The views toward cannabis have shifted dramatically over the past ten years. In 2005, only 33 percent of the American population supported legalizing marijuana, today that number has increased by twenty-two percent, to an astounding 55 percent.

Dighe believes that the potential profit gained from…
