Jewish Film Festival – Persona Non Grata

April 17, 2018 @ 7:15 pm - 9:45 pm

This astounding tale pays tribute to the only Japanese national honored at Yad Vashem, Chiune Sugihara, known as the “Japanese Schindler.” Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat posted in Lithuania. As WWII began and Germany invaded Poland, hordes of Jewish refugees fled to Lithuania. In search of transit visas, they turned to Sugihara who was torn between his loyalty to his country and his own moral calling.
