About the Family
This family's visas were issued by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on May 18 and June 17, 1940 after having been explicitly denied by Salazar, the Portuguese head of state.
Ghislaine HALLET and her grandmother, Marguerite VITALI, sailed on the Excambion from Lisbon to New York in October 1940.
