During the WWII, one Japanese saved refugees from many European countries by distributing “Life Visa”. Mr. Chiune Sugihara.
The number of refugees he saves is about 6000. Many of refugees were Jew, so he is also called “Japanese Schindler” in foreign countries.
Without the permission of Japanese government, he followed his conscience. At the posted thread, the introduction of Mr. Sugihara’s credit is introduced from the site organized by Jewish Americans. Many foreigners’ hearts seemed to be touched by this fact.
- We should say it is Japanese Schindler’s list?
- But why did Jew want to go to Japan which has an alliance with Germany?
- Japan had war against China. Jew was not related.
- I remember that I read about him in the text-book. It’s incredible story during the war.
- It’s incredible fact. My coworker talked about this last week.
- The film based on him got the short film award at the Academy award. The title is “Visas and Virtue”.
- I read about him in the book for children. Is it only me?
- I read about him in the textbook!
- I know one of 6000 people, personally… It’s really amazing story.
- I live in the city where this person was working at. But I have never heard about him. (It’s a small country, so this kind of good historical story should be known…) Anyway, I’m glad to know that such a great thing happened in my city.
- Well, Japan did horrible things in Nanjing, though.
- There is no ranking for that. Each countries did horrible things with its own way.
- It might not be related, but the lost 10 families of Israel visited Japan.
- Ah.. My grandmother was saved by him. I thank Sugihara for my exist now!
- ”Sugihara’s list” cinemalization is fixed!
- While I read the articles, I just cried so much.
- There is a wonderful memorial hall in Kanaus, Lithuania. Basically, the place organized by a small jew community.
- If the Axis powers won, Japan and Germany might have fought next…
- I’ve never known this story… Such a great person… Tears came out…
- I know about him, but still this story makes me cry…
- Amazing. How come one person can save such a great amount of people…
Also with a good way… I think it’s the lesson for all people. History comes back again… We might have his position…
- My grandfather, my aunt and her parents are saved by this great man. I never imagined that I could see him here, so I got so impressed.
- I’m a teacher for 11 years old. If I could let them know this story, it should be great.
- I read this in English textbook. I thought “Why do I need to read such a heavy story even I’m just 9 years old…”, though.
- I sometimes become Sugihara when I handle boring office work. The trivial papers look very important. Then, I can work very well!
- He saved my grandfather. It’s not a lie. He left 100 descendants and passed away. He was 94 years old. My exist now is thanks to this person.
- I think my university (Harvard)’s Pr.John Stosinger is one of people who were saved by this person.
- My grandmother got the Visa from this person, too. There was an event for people who saved by Sugihara in Shanghai. According to my grandmother, wife of Sugihara participated to this event, too. She said his wife is very great and modest.
- How do you feel to read this story? Your grandmother was saved by this person. I’m not related, but I got so shocked by this story. I cannot imagine how you felt by reading this story.
- This person stayed long time in my city. As a person who studied Japanese, I felt proud to visit that memorial hall. Chiue Sugihara is a real hero. I’m very proud that he was working at the city where I live.
