Textbooks Include
Man Who Saved Jews

New York (JTA) — The
Japanese Ministry of Edu-
cation has announced that
its high-school textbooks
will now include the story of
a World War II Japanese
diplomat who helped
thousands of Jews escape the
Nazis.
The Education Ministry
informed the World Jewish
Congress that a standard
first-year high-school tex-
tbook will devote eight pages
to chronicling how Sempo
Sugihara, the wartime
Japanese consul general in
Kovno, Lithuania, issued
thousands of visas to Jewish
refugees from Poland to
enter Siberia and Japan.
The Japanese Embassy in
Washington informed the
WJC of this decision "as a
result of ongoing discussions
on general matters of
mutual concern," said Elan
Steinberg, WJC executive
director.
The actions of Mr.
Sugihara, whose human-
itarian exploits were written
up in the book The Fugu
Plan, were opposed by the
wartime Tokyo government,
which was in alliance with
Nazi Germany.
In 1984, the Yad Vashem
Holocaust Memorial and
Museum in Jerusalem
awarded Mr. Sugihara a
posthumous title of Righ-
teous Among the Nations.
Japan has until recently
been extremely reluctant to
acknowledge its wartime
misdeeds, from its attack on
Pearl Harbor to its overrun-
ning of much of China to its
use of Korean women as
prostitutes.
Moreover, the Japanese
media have been overrun by
anti- Semitic books and a
mainstream newspaper re-
cently printed a highly visi-
ble anti-Semitic advertise-
ment.
Several Jewish groups, in-
cluding the WJC, American
Jewish Committee and Anti-
Defamation League, have
been holding discussions
with Japanese authorities
on various issues.
The AJCommittee just
completed a study of 40
standard Japanese secon-
dary-school textbooks used
for the study of English.
"We found that they were
generally sensitive dealing
with non-Japanese popula-
tions but there are some
specific examples of prob

lems that have to be ad-
dressed," said Neil Sand-
berg, president of AJCom-
mittee's Pacific Rim In-
stitute.
"We were looking for
intercultural content, how
they dealt with outsiders,
Jews and others," Mr. Sand-
berg said.
He said that for example,
Japanese students read The
Diary of Anne Frank, but the
Jewish girl who was hidden
in an attic from the Nazis
and ultimately deported to
her death because she was a
Jew "is being increasingly
portrayed as a universal fig-
ure and less Jewish."
Mr. Sandler also described
a gratuitous description in a
textbook of a rabbi's son, "an
unpleasant boy who tripped
a Japanese girl to fall."
He said these were excep-
tions to the rule. "For the
most part, the textbooks
were pretty good."
Mr. Sandler said the inclu-
sion of Mr. Sugihara in tex-
tbooks "is an attempt to
show that people in Japan
were capable of human ac-
tions during the war.
"In a sense, it is a revi-
sionist inclusion, although I
think it is important that it
be done."
The AJCom_mittee report
will be submitted to the
Japanese Ministry of Edu-
cation in the fall. ❑

Israel Offers
Medical Aid

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel
has offered to fly a group of
25 wounded children from
Bosnia-Herzegovina to
Israel for medical treatment.
The children, most of
whom suffer from limb
wounds, would be jointly
cared for by the Health Min-
istry, the Foreign Ministry,
Histadrut sick fund and the
air force.
The effort would be carried
out with the cooperation of
the United Nations relief
effort in Bosnia, which has
worked with similar mis-
sions by other countries.
After treatment, the chil-
dren would be returned to
the Yugoslav region.
Israel has previously ab-
sorbed a group of 96 Bosnian
refugees, most of whom in-
tend to stay here for the
foreseeable future. ❑
