Wikipedia, via WWW, May 30, 2012 (b. in Lidingö Municipality, Sweden; died, presumed July 17, 1947, Moscow, Soviet Union; studied architecture at University of Michigan, 1931-1935)
New York times. 1 Novermber 2016: page A6 (Swedish diplomat declared dead, 71 years after vanishing; The official Soviet account, issued in 1957, was that Mr. Wallenberg died of a heart attack at age 34 on July 17, 1947, at the Lubyanka headquarters of the K.G.B. in Moscow. But few took that account seriously. ... In June [2016], newly published diaries of Ivan A. Serov, the original head of the K.G.B., shed new light on the case by stating outright that Mr. Wallenberg was executed. ... In an email, Pia Gustafsson, a lawyer at the legal department at the Swedish Tax Agency, said it had decided to regard Mr. Wallenberg as missing as of July 31, 1947. Under Swedish law, the official date of death for missing people is defined as the fifth anniversary of their disappearance -- in Mr. Wallenberg's case, July 31, 1952. "Please note that this does not imply that the Tax Agency has made any judgment as to whether this is the actual day of death," Ms. Gustafsson wrote.)
