The audacious true story of the Japanese diplomat who acted against orders to save thousands of Jewish lives from Nazi extermination, PERSONA NON GRATA is a sweeping, historical film that follows Chiune Sugihara from
his early days in Manchuria to his posting as Japan’s consul in Lithuania during WWII. Bound by both a treaty with Nazi Germany, and his own moral awakening, Sugihara put career and family at great risk by issuing transit visas
to imperiled European refugees, helping more than 6,000 Jews escape to Japanese territory. Part of the movie deplicts the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion’s encounter with Jewish prisoners at Dachau.
