Chiune Sugihara was a man who history forgot about until 1995. As a diplomat of Lithuania, he was responsible for issuing travel Visas in 1939. As World War II grew in scope, he noticed many Jewish refugees demanding safe passage, something the Japanese Government was unwilling to provide. Going against his Government’s wishes, Chiune produced over six thousand handwritten passports until his office finally closed. They say he wrote until the train left the station. Today, we should remember Chiune.
This is his story, care to listen?
