About the Family

H.A. and Margret REY received visas issued under the authority of Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bayonne on June 20, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal and subsequently went to Brazil. In October 1940 they sailed from Rio de Janeiro to New York on the vessel Uruguay.

They escaped Europe carrying the manuscript to the first Curious George book, which they then published in New York in 1941.
