Chiune Sempo Sugihara, Japanese diplomat in Lithuania who saved 6,000 Jews. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18-20 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was still writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away.
