About the Family

The DE FONTNOUVELLE family, French citizens, with their governess Germaine SENGLET, a Swiss citizen, were in Bordeaux, France on June 20, 1940. They presumably obtained Portuguese visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes on or around that date.

They crossed into Portugal and sailed from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Excambion in July 1940.
