Author Ken Mochizuki reads his award-winning book Baseball Saved Us about a Japanese American boy who learns to play baseball when he and his family are forced to live in an internment camp during World War II. Hearing about how his ability to play the game helps him after the war is over adds to this touching story.

Listening to the author read his story about Chiune Sugihara in A Passage to Freedom offers an even more dramatic understanding of the difficult decision that the Japanese diplomat made in 1940: should he follow a Japanese government mandate and refuse visas to Jewish refugees in Lithuania, or follow his conscience and try to save lives?

    " When we re kids, we all thing that our dad is a hero. Hiroki's dad was really a hero. He challenged the Nazi army and his government to help people he did not even know. He didnot mind losing everything. He wanted to help and he did so not to gain fame. He did so for his son, Hiroki. "

    " Wonderful story and pictures. Can be used as a history text or teach the importance of helping others. Story introduces Holocaust so be cautious in reading to the class. "

    " Several international leaders during the Holocaust have been honored as "Righteous Among Nations," their stories told in books and movies (Schindler's List comes to mind). The story of Sugihara, Japanese ambassador to Lithuania in 1940, has been told here through the eyes of his young son, with an afterword in the son's own words. He is justifiably proud of the role his father played in saving thousands of lives, and the fact that he was the only Asian recognized for such service to humanity. "

    " This is the first time I had heard of this incredible story. I would be interested in reading a version that is more detailed and on an adult level, but I am really glad that I was advised to read this book and take that advise. "
