Note: 
Strong, sepia-tone illustrations enhance this moving brief biography of the Japanese diplomat who saved thousands of Jews by issuing exit visas to them during the Holocaust. For younger readers than Gold's biography of Sugihara entitled A SPECIAL FATE, it is told by Sugihara's young son. This child's-eye perspective brings to light family relationships, the desperate situation of Lithuanian Jews, the circumstances under which Sugihara disobeyed his government's orders, and the importance of his courageous act.
