Sugihara Chiune: The Path of Humanity
Chiune Sugihara (1900-1986) was a Japanese diplomat who played a significant humanitarian role during World War II. He issued over 2,000 transit visas to Jewish refugees, saving numerous lives.
Sugihara spent about ten years of his childhood in Nagoya.
To commemorate his accomplishments, a pathway of approximately 4.5 kilometers was named "Sugihara Chiune: The Path of Humanity," connecting the area near his former residence to his alma mater, the former Aichi Prefectural Fifth Middle School (now Aichi Prefectural Mizuho High School).
