Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Well Done  Oct 31, 2008
Passage to Freedom by Ken Mochizuki is a fictional biography of the Sugihara family who saved thousands of Jewish refugees from Poland. The pictures go along very well with the story and are well done. The story is told in first person from Hiroki's, the son's, point of view. The book appears to be well researched and authentic. Thanks is given to the Sugihara family and the Holocaust Oral History Project for help in creating the book. The photograph on the back is of the true family. The language and vocabulary flow well and are appropriate for young audiences. The strong character of the family is developed through their struggle to decide to help the Jews.
 
Could Be An Asset To Anybody With Japanese Blood  May 5, 2008
I have heard of the story and what he did in the past, but not in this detail written for children. I am very proud to be Japanese, and hope my sons, for whom I purchsed it, will feel the same way because they are half Japanese and half American. This book could be an asset to anybody with Japanese blood.
 
Classic(review by Jakob)  May 22, 2006
When reading this booki was amazed that so few would do so much for so many,Ive never heard of a story like it. What suprised me even more was that the man who saved all those Jews was a Japanese, if i remember correctly where an axis power during WW2 and allied with the Germans. This man must have really followed his heart if he was to defy his own country, and for that i really admire him

Sharing a positive side of the Holocaust with young readers  May 5, 2005
I used this book as an introduction to the Holocaust for my 7-year-old. Rather than starting him off on the atrocities, I used this well-written and beautiful book to start him off with learning that we Jews were once in grave danger, and there were some people who took care of us when they could, even though it was a difficult choice.

3/4 of the way through reading the book out loud to my son, I started to cry a little. The story is poignant, of course, but more than that, the writing captures the meaning in such a simple and straight-forward way.

I would recommend this book to anybody, Jewish or not Jewish. It is an excellent introduction to the concept that life can be dangerous, along with the idea that good people exist, AND that any one of us can choose to be a person who makes a difference.

The writing makes it clear that Sugihara was risking his and his family's lives to do the right thing. And, the writing makes it clear that being the child of someone who is willing to do the right thing can be difficult, but well worth it.

A beautiful book.
