How Aristides de Sousa Mendes Saved Thousands from the Nazis

Jill Neuwelt will discuss her trip last year with the Sousa Mendes Foundation to commemorate the work of Aristides de Sousa Mendes. She and a group met in Bordeaux and travelled along the route that the refugees took to Lisbon. Among those on the trip was Henry Dyner, whose parents received a visa when he was 3 years old. He and his family eventually moved to Paraguay, then to Brazil and finally to the US. The group included three other descendants of visa recipients. During the talk, Jill will share the work of Aristides de Sousa Mendes and the stories of the survivors.
