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?
