  1. I imagine this day is more of an emphasis in Europe – I don’t hear anything of it here in the U.S. As I said to Jane on FB, I believe Chiune Sugihara was the diplomat who saved my teacher (and thus saved the Mir Yeshiva). Quite a hero.

  2. Yes, a lovely tribute. I saw that the England football team had been working on this educational resource. It portrays them in a more illuminating light than some of the antics they get up to on the football pitch. Good for them.
