Lithuania is my country too, and I don't want to be your slave," the Russian man said. "You are a fool," the Lithuanian replied. "I don't want to do anything like that. Live quietly; who is bothering you? You have rights here. Why do you need the Kremlin or Moscow?"

Hanni Vogelweid of Huntington Beach doesn't remember seeing Chiune Sugihara, the Japanese diplomat who provided her family with transit visas so they could leave Lithuania in early 1941. But she'll never forget what Sugihara did. She's alive because of him. Vogelweid, a 73-year-old German-born Jew, is one of as many as 10,000 who received transit visas from a man who risked his own life to help Jews avoid the Holocaust.
