Sousa Mendes and the Refugees of World War II

In commemoration of Kristallnacht, Joan Halperin will discuss her book My Sister’s Eyes about her family’s escape from Belgium. Her family members survived thanks to Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a Portuguese Consul who issued visas (and passports) to Jews and others fleeing Nazi Germany during WWII.  Registration is required.
