About this title


It is the first definitive biographical account of the life and times of Chiune Sugihara and some of the survivors who received his visas. Chapters are devoted to Sugihara's beginnings, education, diplomatic service, eastern European odyssey, and adversity and redemption. The book includes stories of selected Sugihara survivors, and an appendix brings readers up to date on the lives of these survivors. This book reveals the principles that governed Sugihara's life, which prompted him to shoulder an awesome and dangerous responsibility because "It was the right thing to do." No man better deserves the tribute, "He made a difference." Jerry Enomoto, Retired, US Marshal; former Director of CA Dept of Corrections; former President of National Japanese American Citizens League (2 terms) It is a very vital and important book that will help readers understand the underlying values that Sugihara lived by. Little is known about his upbringing and the true meaning of the code of Bushido, that he was instilled with that guided him throughout his life. Sugihara's story should be as well known as that of Oscar Schindler. Dr. Walburga Von Hoffler-Engel, Vanderbilit University, Emerita
