Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.
The awesome things I learn on tumblr
They made a picture book about him : >

can’t decide if i’d rather be home or at school.. sad that the only reason i’m okay being home is because i’m not at school, and i’m okay being at school because i’m not home.. just gotta find the lesser of two evils now. what is home, anyway?
