This remarkable true story has been described by historians as the largest rescue action by a single individual during the Holocaust. June 1940  Paris is occupied. Millions of refugees fleeing the advancing Nazi troops rush to Bordeaux, France seeking passage to safety. An anxious crowd surrounds the Consulate of Portugal, an officially neutral nation. The Portuguese Consul is a man named Aristides de Sousa Mendes. But Portugals Prime Minister Salazar has forbidden its diplomats to open Portugals borders to undesirables specifically Jews.Sousa Mendes jeopardizes his career and familys safety and prepares visas night and day, signing thousands of passports. It is estimated that he granted visas to as many as 10,000 Jews.www.sousamendesfoundation.org
