ynopsis On a summer morning in 1940, Chiune Sugihara, Japan's
consul-general in Lithuania, awoke to the sound of
more
than 200 people filling the crowded street outside
the
consulate. Fearing the worst, the consul hid his wife
and
children, but it did not take him long to realize
that
those outside were Jews hoping to get visas that would
take
them out of the country to freedom. While American
consuls
throughout the neutral world were instructed not to
grant
such visas, the Japanese consul took it upon himself to
do
so; working around the clock, he issued an estimated
1,600
visas and ultimately may have saved as many as 6,000
Jewish
lives. Directed by Katsumi Ohyama and produced by
Tetsuo
Suzuki, Naonori Kawamura, and Toshio Ozawa.
Japanese
dialogue with English subtitles.
