On the 2nd of September, first ever Sugihara Week in Kaunas has started. With events like opening concert, screening of the movie „Persona non Grata (2015)“, Japanese tales exhibition, Litvak photo collage, etc., Kaunas citizens and Kaunas city visitors were engaged in Sugihara Week. For Sugihara Museum, the most important moment was the 4th of September. That day, the repainting of the house began. After the symbolic opening ceremony, TOKON Painters immediately started their work by washing the walls. The weather is not perfect therefore the volunteering team shall work according to the weather conditions even as long as 8:00 PM.
