The PARNES couple, Polish citizens living in Antwerp, presumably received visas under the authority of Aristides de Sousa Mendes in June 1940.

They crossed into Portugal, arriving in Curia on June 26, 1940 and later moving to Porto in November of that year. They subsequently sailed from Lisbon to New York on the vessel Nyassa in June 1941.
