Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died. Faith in humanity restored

October 2, 1919: President Woodrow Wilson suffers debilitating stroke. For the rest of his term Wilson pretty much stayed out of sight from his Vice President, Thomas R. Marshall, the Cabinet, and Congress members. Meanwhile, for all practical purposes, Edith ran the country.
American Presidents, White Houses, American History, Presidents Woodrow, Woodrow Wilson, U.S. Presidents, Edith Wilson, Lady Edith, First Lady
Edith Wilson, the wife of President Woodrow Wilson, served as acting President for 1 1/2 years. Her husband suffered a stroke, and because the Constitution had not yet been amended to appoint the Vice-President in his place, Mrs. Wilson handled the Presidential affairs aptly, filling vacancies and administering foreign policy. Some called it the " Petticoat Government.'' but this was meant as a slur.
American History: Wilson Urges Support for Idea of League of Nations
October 2, 1919 – U.S. President Woodrow Wilson suffers a massive stroke, leaving him partially paralyzed. Wilson was kept out of the presence of Vice President Thomas R. Marshall, his cabinet, and Congressional visitors to the White House for the remainder of his term. His wife served as his steward, selecting issues for his attention and delegating other issues to his cabinet heads. The full extent of his disability was kept from the public until after his death on February 3, 1924.

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.

Young Willie Lincoln (age 11) died in the White House in the bed now in the Lincoln Bedroom at about 5:00 P.M. on February 20, 1862. Both Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower claimed they felt the powerful presence of Abraham Lincoln in this room. Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Sometimes when I worked at my desk late at night I'd get a feeling that someone was standing behind me. I'd have to turn around and look." Rumors were that Winston Churchill had a Lincoln sighting in the room.
