The Consul of Bordeaux


German premiere of the film about the “Portuguese Schindler”
WED 08.11.2017 (06:00 pm)

Through a daredevil action in 1940, Aristides de Sousa Mendes helped many people in distress and gave them “the ticket to freedom, to life”. Despite being forbid to do so by his government, the former Consul General saved around 30.000 people, of which around 10.000 were Jews, throughout the Second World War by granting those visas to Portugal. The 30th Jewish Culture Days in Berlin present the German premier of the Portuguese film “The Consul of Bordeaux” (in German), which tells us about the story of the still celebrated hero. His grandson will be present, alongside co-producer and Film music-composer Henri Seroka.
