Just for general principle, Sugihara is worth reading about. Also look to Shanghai, as a lot of Jews left Russia and Poland via Shanghai.

Joe Svinth's Sugihara reference is a good one. Amazing man, that Sugihara. He was fired by his own government and blackballed for years after the war for what he did.

You also might want to do a search on books about the 100th/442nd RCT, made up of mostly Japanese Americans, who participated in the liberation of Dachau.
