Deep Blue has begun hosting video recordings of the Wallenberg Lectures, given in memory of University of Michigan alumnus and humanitarian Raoul Wallenberg. The first batch to be made available via Deep Blue are the 2008-2010 lectures by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, journalist Lydia Cacho, and Dr. Denis Mukwege. You can find them in the Wallenberg Lectures collection.
Each Wallenberg Medal Recipient and Lecturer is selected because he or she exemplifies heroism, courage, self-sacrifice, and integrity. Medalists embody the idea that one person can make a difference in the defense of human liberty. Past recipients of the medal include Marcel Marceau, His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet, Miep Gies, and Elie Wiesel.
MPublishing is proud to have a role in making these recordings more widely available, and the collection will continue to grow as more recipients are named and as the Wallenberg Lecture archives are digitized.
