Chiune Sugihara saved thousands of Jewish refugees by issuing thousands of visas so they could get a Japanese transit across Russia.
*Our library also contains a CD witch contains Narration by Tom Osborne, poetry by Sugihara's wife and an original score performed by an international ensemble.

Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. While serving as a diplomat his life turned upside down due to WW II breaking out. Defing orders from the Japanese government he issued over 6,000 transit visas which allowed Jews to leave the country and flea to safety. Sugihara returned to Japan where he was dismissed from government service and disgraced for the rest of his life. It was only after his death that his heroics became known. The book is written by his wife, and this is a little known part of WWII history.

Also, watch the PBS documentary entitled Sugihara: Conspiracy of Kindness. ( )
