About the Family

David and Alice VAN BUUREN 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 flew on the Pan Am seaplane Dixie Clipper from Lisbon to New York on June 24, 1940.
