VISAS FOR LIFE: A TRANSACTION BETWEEN HEARTS OVER 76 YEARS
During World War II, the Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara issued “visas for life” in order to save Jewish lives. Equipped with the visas, many Jewish crossed the Continent and arrived in Japan, from where they escaped to other parts of the world to survive. It was Japan Tourist Bureau, now the JTB Group, that undertook their transportation on ship from the Continent to Japan.
Deborah and Shelley, the two daughters of Sonia Reed, one of those refugees, came to visit us at the JTB Global Marketing & Travel office as we have taken over inbound services from Japan Tourist Bureau. See the summary of the visit here.
