MY HERO recommends this book to young adult readers.

The Japanese of Pearl Harbor infamy saved Jews from the clutches of their German ally out of gratitude to one Jew who saved Japan in its war with Russia at the beginning of the 20th century. This is the true story of Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania who risked his life and career to save thousands of Jews from certain death at the hands of the Nazis during the World War II.
