Amazingly hawt Chinue Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat who served as Vice-Consul for the Japanese Empire in Lithuania. During 1940, when the Soviets invaded Lithuania, Sugihara issued about 6,000 exit visas to thousands of Jews desperate to get out (at the time, one visa could cover an entire family). He signed visas through his last night in the country, even until the last moment on the train, throwing them out the window to anyone who could catch one. His actions, although against Japanese policy, saved over 10,000 Jews and 40,000 of their descendants are alive today because of it. After being sacked by the Japanese government he took a number of odd jobs, including one in Siberia Russia until he died in 1986. He is honored as Righteous among the Nations by the State of Israel.
I truly love this man.
wonderful people are everywhere and in all time periods.
