Desobeir - Aristides de Sousa Mendes



"In 1939, an unassuming Portuguese diplomat named Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a married family man in his 60s, is appointed as a consul in Bordeaux. In 1940, as German troops swarm across France he defies his superiors and the orders of the dictator Salazar by issuing thousands of visas for entry into Portugal. In doing so, he enables almost 30,000 people including 10,000 Jews to escape the barbarity of the Nazi regime".
