Abstract:

This documentary tells the life story of Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat who saved thousands of Jews during the World War Two, with accounts given by family members and Jewish survivors and their families. Sugihara was born in 1900 of samurai lineage. He studied foreign languages and became an enthusiastic diplomat. During World War Two, as a vice-consul in Kaunas, Lithuania, where Jewish refugees from Poland tried to flee, Sugihara issued visas for them, defying the Japanese government's strict guidelines. After the war, he was asked to quit the Ministry. Disgraced, he lived an anonymous life and little was known about his bravery until a survivor finally located him. Honour came to the "Japanese Schindler" only shortly before his death.
