Chiune Sugihara, the Japanese consul in Kaunas, Lithuania, issued a large number of transit visas for Jewish refugees, most of whom took refuge from Poland occupied by the Third Reich and the USSR, and rescued approximately 6,000 of them from the Holocaust in summer of 1940. This year, 2020, marks the 80th Anniversary of the Visas for Life, his noble work in Europe, and the 120th Anniversary of his birth. The Lithuanian Parliament approved the initiative to name 2020 the Year of Chiune Sugihara, and the Lithuanian government is holding many events related to the Visas for Life in Lithuania and Japan. Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Center in Jerusalem, honored Sugihara as one of the Righteous Among the Nations in 1985. The Aichi Board of Education established Sugihara Chiune Park in front of Zuiryo Highschool, Sugihara’s alma mater, to memorialize his virtuous effort, in Naogya in 2018. Meijo University has trained Sugihara Chiune volunteer guides in Nagoya since 2018. In academia, some new research on Visas for Life has been published around the world. To commemorate the 80th Anniversary, the webinar on Visas for Life will be organized as follows:
