History had many unsung heroes. Individuals who rose to the occasion in nearly impossible circumstances but are rarely talked about. January 27th was Holocaust Memorial Day. This year one such individual is finally being recognized, Chiune Sugihara. Sugihara was a Japanese diplomat during World War II.  He would go on to save thousands of Jewish people from a fate most could not escape.
