About the Family
The BLATT/HOLLANDER family received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 18 and 20, 1940 after having been explicitly refused by Salazar, the Portuguese head of state.
They crossed into Portugal, arriving in Curia on June 26, 1940. Anna Maria and Kaufmann BLATT traveled with their daughter Ida HOLLANDER from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Nyassa in April 1941.
