For those genealogists interested in refugees escaping Europe in the early years of WWII, including the aid of Chiune Sugihara and others, I will be presenting the story of this escape as well as the stories of seven specific refugees in my talk entitled "Visas for Life: Seven Refugees Journey to Safe Haven." The talk is scheduled for Thursday, August 11 at 3 PM in the Aspen Room.

Parts of this presentation is based on my Japanese colleague, Akira Kitade's book "Visas for Life and the Epic Journey: How the Sugihara Survivors Reached Japan." See  After my talk, I will be selling his English language book in the Exhibitor Hall from 4:15 to 5:15 PM. Cost is $20 cash or check.

I hope to see you there.
