This September, Kaunas once again becomes lively and buzzing capital of cultural fusion during Sugihara Week 2018. The second international festival is held on September 3 to September 9 in various sites of Kaunas city.

There is a reason why Sugihara Week takes place in the beginning of September. In year 1940, the very first days of autumn were at the same time the last ones for Chiune Sugihara in Kaunas, saving the lives of Jews who were trying to leave the dangerous Europe. Marking this event, Kaunas hosts everyone, wishing to commemorate the deeds of Mr Sugihara in a dynamic and attractive manner.
