Passage to Freedom

By American Bookseller

A powerful story that needs to be told. In 1940, Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat living in Lithuania, issued thousands of visas to Jewish refugees - against the recommendations of his government - to allow them to flee the Nazis. Told through the eyes of his son Hiroki, who was five at the time, it is a touching account of how one person’s courage can make a difference. Lee’s stunning sepia-toned illustrations add power and dignity to this beautiful story.
