About the Family

The STADLER family received visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 19, 1940.

The numbering of the visas, much lower than that of other known visas delivered on the same date, suggests the existence of a second visa registry book for the Portuguese Consulate in Bordeaux, beyond the book that survives. Moreover, the signatures are clearly in another hand, not that of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, confirming the fact that others were part of the visa delivery assembly line process.

The family crossed into Portugal, where they resided in Curia. In December of 1940 they sailed on the vessel Serpa Pinto from Lisbon to New York.
