Chiune Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat serving in Lithuania during World War II. He risked his life and the life of his family. Sugihara went against the decree of the Japanese Empire and saved Jews by issuing them handwritten visa.
When he traveled through train, he wrote visas and threw them out of the window. He was able to save more than 6,000 Jews.
Just three days before the invasion of Poland, Chiune opened the Japanese Consulate in Kaunas, Lithuania. Many Jewish refugees from Poland did not have enough money. They could not fulfill the Japanese visa requirements.
But he still chose to help them. Now, look at the documentary in which survivors talk about one of the unsung heroes of World War II.
