Sugihara continued to handwrite visas, producing a normal month's worth each day, until the Japanese consulate in Lithuania was closed. By that time he had granted thousands of visas to Jews.

In final desperation, he flung out blank sheets of paper with only the consulate stamp and his signature (Wikipedia excerpt).
