Sousa Mendes Foundation’s Work Featured in Leading Scholarly Journal

The Sousa Mendes Foundation is featured in the pages of the Spring 2015 issue of Prism, the premiere Holocaust education journal, in a pair of articles by SMF President and co-founder, Olivia Mattis. One article, “Sousa Mendes’s List: From Names to Families,” describes the work of the SMF research team in identifying, locating and contacting recipients of Aristides de Sousa Mendes’s life-saving visas. The other, “The Holocaust Cartoon—No Longer Taboo,” discusses the SMF’s just-published graphic novel Aristides de Sousa Mendes: Hero of the Holocaust by José Ruy and its potential use in today’s classrooms as an introduction to the subjects of Jewish history, Portuguese history, and rescuers and refugees during the Holocaust.
