About the Family

This family received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bayonne, France on June 21, 1940.

The DESER family crossed into Portugal, where they lived in Figueira da Foz. They sailed from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Guine in May 1941. Emile MELAMED, brother of Mirjam DESER, settled in Israel after fighting in the South African army's North African campaigns.
