Note: 
The biography of Japanese diplomat and Righteous Gentile, Chiune Sugihara, is interwoven with the stories of two Holocaust survivors whose lives he touched. A personal portrait of Sugihara is drawn, showing him as a man of integrity, compassion, and deep family loyalties. His wife, Yukiko, emerges as an equally strong person whose support for her husband's decision to issue thousands of exit visas to desperate Jews was crucial. Some black and white photographs round out a well-researched and readable biography.
