Abstract:

Describes the tragedy of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese consul general in Bordeaux, France, who was suspended and tried by his government (1940) for having granted visas to some 10,000 Jewish refugees fleeing from the Nazi occupation in 1940. All Portuguese consuls received formal orders to deny visas to most refugees: undesirables, anti-Nazis, and especially Jews. Mendes was accused of disobedience to Salazar's policies, and of thereby harming neutral Portugal's relations with Nazi Germany and Franco's Spain. Mendes died in poverty in 1954. He was rehabilitated only in 1988 at the instigation of Portuguese and Jewish groups in the USA and Israel. During his career, he was sometimes suspected of Converso ancestry.
