Holocaust Hero: Tree for Sugihara (DVD)

This is the compelling story of a hero of the Holocaust, Chiune Sempo Sugihara, a man of conscience, who defied his country by issuing thousands of visas during WW II, which allowed over 6000 Jews to escape the murderous hands of the Nazis. Included are conversations with Sugihara's son, Hiroki; Hillel Levine, author of In Search of Sugihara; plus, in Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, where a tree for Sugihara is planted, we meet Mordecai Paldiel, Director at the Department for the Righteous Among Nations.
