After the war, Wallenberg was arrested by the Soviets and disappeared into their prison system. He was last seen leaving the city on 17 January 1945, just after the Soviet army liberated the city. There is surprisingly little difference between the totalitarian governments of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Hitler caused the deaths of 20 million people in World War II, and Stalin murdered 20 million of his own people - all to further their own desire for power. Individual, freedom loving people died under both dictators.
