A talk on November 19th at QC: tracing the footsteps of Sugihara’s holocaust survivors who reached Japan


The Japanese Studies at Queens College is hosting a talk on November 19th (please find the attached flyer). This is a rare opportunity for us to have Mr. Kitade, the author of “Visas of Life and the Epic Journey–how the Sugihara survivors reached Japan” here on our campus. We are possibly having an actual survivor joining us for this talk as well.

Thank you.
