About the Family
The GOLDENHAR family, Polish citizens escaping from Belgium, received Portuguese visas in Toulouse on June 19, 1940 from honorary vice-consul Emile Gissot under orders from Aristides de Sousa Mendes.
They crossed into Portugal and sailed on the vessel Quanza from Lisbon to Vera Cruz, Mexico. After being denied entry by the Mexican authorities, they were eventually granted asylum in the United States.
