Researchers say Japan exaggerated the story of ‘Japanese Schindler’ Chiune Sugihara

YAOTSU, Aug 02 (timesofisrael.com) –
Three years earlier than the Olympics started in 2021, Tokyo was already growing the nationwide picture it could show because the world regarded on.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education issued a handout to town’s public colleges in 2018 highlighting “the outstanding achievements of our predecessors” that have been meant to “raise [students’] self-awareness and pride as Japanese.”

Occupying a majority of the four-page handout was the story of diplomat Chiune Sugihara, who wrote 1000’s of life-saving visas for Jews fleeing Europe in 1940. The pamphlet recreates a dramatized model of Sugihara’s life and actions, bolstered by quotes from anonymous descendants of the Jewish refugees he saved.

Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat to Lithuania from 1939 to 1940, helped 1000’s of Jewish refugees flee wartime Europe by issuing transit visas that allowed them to journey throughout the Soviet Union to Japan. Today, his identify and story could be discovered everywhere in the nation, from his supposed hometown in Yaotsu to a museum on the northern Tsuruga port the place Jewish refugees landed.
