About the Family

These visas were issued by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 19, 1940.

Cyvia WEISSMAN and her daughter Margit crossed into Portugal, but Siegfried WEISSMAN was still in Marseille as of July 1940. He was subsequently able to join them in Porto. They sailed from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Nea Hellas in September 1940.
