( by Ken Mochizuki/illus. By Dom Lee, Lee & Low $6.95 Score: ) A simple, but eloquent telling of the true and heartening Sugihara story. Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania in 1940, disregards his governments’ orders and issues visas to thousands of Jewish refugees who were trying to escape the Nazis. Told in the first person, Ken Mochizuki, manages to convey the voice of Sugihara’s son, Hiroki, who lived through the events. 7 & up.
