house in Cabanas de Viriato.

They needed a document called a visa that would allow
them to cross the border to other foreign countries.
Sometimes these poor people had to stand in line for days
just to get these precious documents.




                                                      7
Although Portuguese authorities were            against
 accepting Jews in Portugal, Aristides decided to give the
 poor people lining outside the Portuguese Consulate a
 visa.

through.

had determined that Jews should not be allowed to get into
our country and Aristides had disobeyed.

When the authorities asked why he had decided to give
those visas, he told them he couldn’t accept that innocent
people would be punished just for having a different culture
and religion

                                                                                                                           15
He lost his job. He and his family had to face poverty.




                                                          16
Although times were very bad for Aristides, he and his
wife and children were happy because they had done
something to save 30.000 people. These people Aristides
helped wouldn’t be sent to concentration camps.




                                                     17
They had a document which allowed them to get to
Portugal and later most of them went to America.




                                               18
Unfortunately, many of them had to stay behind. Innocent
children, women and men were sent to concentration camps
just because they had a different religion or refused to
accept that Hittler’s laws.




                                                       19
Aristides de Sousa Mendes died in poverty but he was
never forgotten by those who had been helped by him.Jews
planted a tree in a park where they cherish the memory of
righteous people.Aristides is one of them.
