Netanya Mayor Miriam Feirberg-Ikar, right, and Nobuki Sugihara, second from right, son of Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara, who helped saved thousands of Lithuanian Jews in World War II, attends a street-naming ceremony in honour of his father in Netanya, Israel, on Tuesday. During the war, Sugihara issued transit visas to Jews, despite being ordered by the Japanese Foreign Ministry not to do so. He is credited with saving 6,000 Jews from the Holocaust. After returning to Japan in 1947, he was pressured to leave the ministry. He died in 1986.© Japan Today
