Summary

Exhibition on the Place de la Résistance in Esch-sur-Alzette
In French and Portuguese
Opening on 24/03 at 7p.m.
From 25/03 to 28/06/2020

During the Second World War, two historical subjects linked Luxembourg to Portugal. The Portuguese consul in Bordeaux Aristides de Sousa Mendes and the Portuguese border town of Vilar Formoso played a key role in rescuing tens of thousands of European refugees, including many Jews, from the Nazi clutches.

The bilingual exhibition (French and Portuguese) is a digest of the exhibitions "Aristides de Sousa Mendes", produced by the National Archives and "Portugal et Luxembourg, pays d’espoir en temps de détresse" produced by MemoShoah and shown in Neimënster.
