Jewish Israeli Film Festival – Persona Non Grata

February 12 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Persona Non Grata on 2/12/17; 3:00 at the Kenwood Theater

The audacious true story of the Japanese diplomat who acted against orders to save thousands of Jewish lives from Nazi extermination. 

Tracking events from 1934 to 1955, the film follows Chiune Sugihara from his early days in Manchuria to his posting as Japan’s consul in Lithuania during WWII. Caught between the rigid policies of Japan and his moral awakening, Sugihara put his career and family at great risk by issuing transit visas to imperiled European refugees. In the end, Sugihara helped more than 6,000 Jews escape to Japanese territory.
