About the Family

The FLEISCHNER family received visas signed by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on October 16, 1939. However, they did not go to Portugal until June 23, 1940.

They were in Figueira da Foz, Portugal in the summer of 1940, and sailed from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Nea Hellas in October 1940.
