The GUILL family crossed into Portugal and stayed in Curia. They subsequently sailed on the ship Nea Hellas from Lisbon to New York in August 1940.

Saul and Augustine RAJCYN and their two children were unable to cross the border and went into hiding in Vence, France. There the family was caught in 1944 and sent to Drancy, then deported to Auschwitz, where they were murdered.
