The above family received a visa from Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on May 29, 1940 after having been explicitly denied by Salazar, the Portuguese head of state.

The SCHIPPER family crossed into Portugal. They sailed on the Serpa Pinto from Lisbon to Jamaica in January 1942, and resided at “Camp Gibraltar,” a refugee camp, for the duration of the war. They subsequently emigrated to the United States.
