About the Family

The RINGELHEIM family received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 18, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal. Rosalie RINGELHEIM and their son Paul sailed on the Nea Hellas from Lisbon to New York in July 1940. Dr. Heinrich RINGELHEIM sailed on the Excalibur from Lisbon to New York in February 1941.

Paul RINGELHEIM became a prominent artist whose 50-foot sculpture World Peace Screen was on display at the 1964 New York World's Fair.
