A Japanese diplomat, and convert to Orthodoxy, Chiune Sugihara saved more Jews in WWII than Schindler.

I'm amazed no one's ever made a film about this remarkable man (perhaps because he's not Anglo-Saxon looking).

There's more info at

mog - Yes, isn't it strange, hmmn.

There were also quite a number of other 'Nips' who quietly did what they could to redress some of the excesses of the Axis, albeit on a smaller scale. But as you say they were of another 'colour', and of course they got identified with the 'Bushido boys'. Pity.

Sorry, that's not what I meant. I meant that the previous poster seems to be responding to someone's post that I can't see
because he says

Unless 'mog' means something else (but I thought that there was a member here called mog)

Hero is a hero, this dude deserves rep. If only he'd join ODN.

...or the world made a global rep. system. I'd neg rep Jesus, because that guy should just go away. He's freakin' everywhere. And maybe Tim Burton, motivate him to improve after corpse bride.

You had me seriously confused. I thought that perhaps either 'mog' stood for something (aka My own guess)

Join? I didn't know that the forum was open for dead people to join. Perhaps you can drop him an e-mail

Where you been Mont? Jesus got the DSL. All the bigwigs in heaven are clamouring to sign up. We'll be debating relativism with Einstien, and nihilism with Neische.
