A work of greatness, testament to the highest good in humanity.
One of the sweetest moments in this superb documentary is when Mr. Sugihara is given his opportunity to attain a kind of sainthood by helping the Jewish people who had nowhere else to turn and he, after contemplating for a while, realizes he can help and if he can help he will help -- in the face of possible censure from his own government and possible profound danger for himself and his family from the Nazis. This is a must see for all who believe that Goodness has a place in the human family. Additionally, it provides an invaluable lesson in a little-know aspect of the history of World War 2 and of the relationship between the Japanese and the Jewish people.
