About the Family

Aron SCHNUR and Aron Herman SCHNUR received visa numbers 2705 and 2707 from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 22, 1940.

They crossed into Portugal and traveled separately to New York. The younger man sailed on the vessel Nea Hellas in September 1940. The older one followed on the Nyassa nearly one year later, in August 1941.

Aron Herman SCHNUR then served as a Private in the US Army and was awarded a Purple Heart.
