Shidzue Katō (加藤 シヅエ Katō Shizue), March 2, 1897 – December 22, 2001) was a 20th Century Japanese feminist and one of the first women elected to the Diet of Japan. Katō was best known as a pioneer in the birth control movement and a strong supporter of labour reform.
Tatsuo Osako, a naval officer from Chiba, Japan has been named "The Japanese Schindler" by many historians. He, along with several colleagues, were responsible for transporting thousands of Jewish citizens from German-occupied territories to safety. Although Japan had an alliance with the Nazis during the war, their government did not adhere to the racial policies being advocated by Hitler and his officials, and men like Osako were credited with having saved hundreds of people.
