Sugihara Lesson Plan for Teachers

The biography of Chiune Sugihara is a compelling story of individual courage and an intriguing window onto a little-known World War II story. Educators can use the film and this Web site to provide students with valuable context for their study of the war, Japan during the early 20th century, and the Holocaust -- as well as being a story that offers an unexpected connection between the West and the East.
