Sugihara: Conspiracy of Kindness is the next film to be screened in the Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series at 1 p.m., April 29, in the Holocaust Museum’s theatre in the Jewish Federation Kopolow Building, #12 Millstone Campus Drive.

Using family photos and papers, and survivor testimony, this documentary tells the inspiring story of Chiune Sugihara, Japanese Consul to Lithuania, who defied Tokyo authorities by writing more than 2,000 transit visas allowing Jews to flee Europe.

Introductory remarks and a post screening discussion will be facilitated by Rabbi Yosef Landa, Regional Director, Chabad of Greater St. Louis. Rabbi Landa’s father was a student in Lithuania who, with the aid of a Sugihara visa, emigrated to Shanghai.

Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public. This 2005 film has a running time of 82 minutes. For further information, call 314-442-3714 or email
