We mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a story of heroism. The actions of a Portuguese diplomat named Aristides de Sousa Mendes is described by one historian as “the largest rescue action by a single individual during the Holocaust.” Gerald Mendes is the grandson of Aristides de Sousa Mendes and Dan Mattis escaped the Nazis with one of the visas issued by Sousa Mendes. (Originally aired Jan 26, 2018).
