About the Family

The TERLINCK couple received visas signed by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 11, 1940.

They are mentioned along with other families in a telegram from Sousa Mendes to Salazar, sent from Bordeaux, requesting that their visas be approved on the basis that they worked for the Belgian Red Cross.

They crossed into Portugal and emigrated to the United States.
