About the Family

The KORNGOLD-TURK family received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 18, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal, where they resided in Porto. They subsequently traveled through Mozambique, the Belgian Congo, South Africa, and Cuba before emigrating on the vessel Oriente in March 1941 to the United States, where they settled and lived in Philadelphia.

Fanny TURK, daughter of Sidzia, sailed from Lisbon to Philadelphia in October 1945.

The family members received U.S. citizenship in 1947 and subsequently returned to Belgium.
