About the Family

The FRUCHT couple received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 17, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal and sailed from Porto to New York on the vessel San Miguel in January 1941.

They took American citizenships but later returned to Belgium after the war, reclaiming their Belgian citizenships.
