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.

Beautiful portrait of a father and his three children. The informal pose is unusual for that time period. And yet it shows the love of this father who doesn't mind getting down on the floor with his little ones. I love the way the boy is hugging his father from behind and the way the father is leaning into his girls, it displays such tenderness. Glasgow, Scotland. ca. 1867
