About the Family

The LUXEMBOURG royal family, along with members of their cabinet and household, received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 17, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal and subsequently traveled to the United States in two groups: on the USS Trenton from Lisbon to Baltimore in July 1940, and on the Pan American seaplane Yankee Clipper from Lisbon to New York in October 1940.
