Posted in: Granddaughter of diplomat who saved Jewish refugees keeping his spirit alive See in context

While it is extremely important that the heroic deeds that Chiune Sugihara had done be appropriately recognized, it is as important to be aware that it's now widely known in Japan that not all of what's been told about Sugihara is not true. Since his name started to be known, bits and pieces of fictions have been added by the NPO "Visas for Life", a defacto family business run by Sugihara's eldest son's estranged wife and her two children including this lady in the above article, to make his story more dramatic and moving. Having attended talks and events organized by these people myself, I was shocked to discover their lack of historical knowledge and the way they skillfully mix facts and fictions to deceive innocent audience. A TV documentary has also been made to disclose the reality of their wrongdoings. Sugihara had repeatedly told his children never to exploit his name to make a profit. It is indeed ironic that his grandchildren are doing just that.
