Letter from Leah Rozenfeld Sills, daughter of Sousa Mendes Visa Recipient Stefan Rozenfeld and Vice-President of the Sousa Mendes Foundation
Last month, I had the opportunity to visit the museum at Vilar Formoso.
What was created there was so moving and memorable that when I stepped in the door, I started to weep.
A museum made for us- It was that emotional Every step and exhibit was designed with the refugees and their families in mind. The photos, facts, videos, and interactive screens taught me about the people and the events that I never even knew were part of our story! I cannot wait to see it again this summer.
With affection on this beautiful fall day in NY,
