About the Family

This family, from Antwerp, is presumed to have received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux in June of 1940.

They crossed into Portugal, where they resided in Porto. The EKSTEIN couple sailed on the vessel Nyassa from Lisbon to New York in April 1941. The MERESCHENSCHI family traveled from Lisbon to Cuba and from there sailed to New York on the vessel Aconcagua in May 1942.
