The Sousa Mendes Foundation presents “To Life!  The Living Legacy of Aristides de Sousa Mendes” — an exhibition of original artifacts in the Municipal Museum of Carregal do Sal, Portugal.  This exhibition will include original photographs, passports, visas, documents, and letters, as well as toys carried by child refugees on their escape from Nazi-occupied Europe in 1940.  It gives a rich flavor for the time, and highlights the crucial role of Aristides de Sousa Mendes in the survival of thousands of innocent victims.  The exhibition highlights the friendships that developed between the arriving refugees and the Portuguese people who welcomed them with open arms.
