The Disobedient Consul

The main focus of the documentation is on the Portuguese diplomat and Consul of Bordeaux Aristides de Sousa Mendes who saved tens of thousands of people from persecution by the Nazi regime in June 1940. He paid dearly for that later on in life. Lisbon was the last open port towards freedom and many Austrian refugees took this escape route.
