This man and his wife belong in the annals of history, not to be set aside, but to be lauded, loud and clear from every person with a heart and soul
How many outside of Lithuania know about this brave man? How many would have done what he did - a rhetorical question because we know the answer. This was an act of charity, an act of love for fellow human beings. This man and his wife belong in the annals of history, not to be set aside, but to be lauded, loud and clear from every person with a heart and soul. What happened to the Jews in Europe in general is horrific, hate begets hate, love saves lives as demonstrated by this great diplomat. Thank you for the story, Boris. It is heart warming despite the background of horror that made it possible.

Schindler is lauded for saving Jews from whose labor he acquired his wealth. Why then are Sugihara's selfless and heroic deeds submerged in the mists of time, only to be brought to the surface by wonderful articles as this? Sugihara deserves to be placed among the giants in Lithuanian history.

Sugihara is very famous. There is a prize in his honor, several streets named after him in Lithuania, and various initiatives where he is mentioned. Also, in Japan, where he was first considered to be a traitor, he is celebrated as a hero, and all Japanese tourists consider it a must to visit the former consulate in Kaunas.
