Carl Lutz, a Swiss diplomat, almost single-handedly conducted the largest civilian rescue operation in the Second World War: he saved approximately 62,000 Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary from the Holocaust by issuing thousands of forged protective documents. In spite of his accomplishments, his name and legacy remain almost completely unknown.
