About the Family

The LOTENBERG family received Portuguese visas in Bayonne on June 21, 1940, under the authority of Aristides de Sousa Mendes.

They crossed into Portugal and resided in Figueira da Foz. Jacob LOTENBERG subsequently sailed on the Serpa Pinto from Lisbon to New York in June 1941. Bessita and Jacqueline first went from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and later to Louisiana in 1942.
