The family listed above was issued visas by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux in June 1940, after having been explicitly denied visas by Salazar, the Portuguese head of state.
The DYNER and GELLERT families crossed into Portugal and subsequently sailed from Lisbon to Buenos Aires on the vessel Cabo de Buena Esperanza in May 1941. Dora INGBER sailed from Cadiz to Buenos Aires on the vessel Cabo de Hornos in May 1942. Some members of the family later emigrated to the US.
