A Japanese hero of the Holocaust
Sugihara: Conspiracy of Kindness
Dir. Robert Kirk (2000)
In July 1940, the Japanese counsel to Lithuania defied the orders of his superiors and with his wife's help spent four weeks writing visas by hand to help Jews escape the Holocaust. Because of their efforts, almost 6,000 Jews were able to flee to Kobe, Japan. The documentary screening is free, but reservations are requested. The program begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 3, at St. Mary's Hall, 9401 Starcrest. To RSVP, call 302-6974.
