At the dawn of the World War II, Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat stationed in Lithuania, issued a number of visa to Japan in an attempt to help the Jews escape to the Soviets. Sugihara was forced to leave the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for his action, but his selfless humanitarian work started to be recognized by the offsprings of the Jews that Sugihara saved.
