What Sugihara did was exceptional especially knowing that his honor and respect To his superiors could have been tarnished in his society. Remember that if his wife did not push and support him saving Jews, would Sugihara still have done it?

In the annals of the “Righteous Among the Nations”, those who rescued Jews from murder in the Holocaust at great risk to themselves and their families, the tale of Chiune Sugihara, vice-consul in the Japanese consulate in Kaunas, stands out for many reasons, including the sheer number of Jews that he rescued at his own initiative and against the wishes of his government – upwards of 6,000. Reportedly working 18-20 hours a day and even as he was enroute to the train station after his consulate had been closed, Sugihara issued transit visas for refugees to travel via the Soviet Union to Japan. From Japan, in coordination with his fellow “Righteous Among the Nations”, Jan Zwartendijk of the Netherlands, more than 2,000 went to Curaçao in the Dutch West Indies. The balance went to other countries with the help of the Joint Distribution Committee, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and the Polish Embassy in Japan. Sugihara House commemorates this man’s compassion, heroism and determination to do the right thing when it would have been much easier to be indifferent. This small museum in an attractive residential neighborhood brings his story to life through the authentic recreation of several rooms in the former consulate, a video about his life, documents from the Japanese archives, photographs and passports from survivors’ families, and more. Truly inspiring.

I received amazing service, and realized this is a special museum. IT IS SUPER SUPER HARD TO FIND I took the bus to the top of the hill and used a map and got lost several times...very little English spoken here, but a nice boy drove me as I could't find it. It is the middle of al to of streets in a residential neighborhood. The museum is very small. Mostly has Japanese tourist. The movie is in Japanese and with English sub titles. If someone doesn't give you a personal tour, you are going to read everything. I don't know if it worth to see the house, but the story is amazing and I cried during the movie.

This house in ww2 was the Japanese embassy and the ambassador saved thousands of Jews by illegally providing them with the transit papers to get them out of Europe. Some interesting displays and an informative subtitled film about him.
