Travelers who are planning a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah, next month may want to stop by the University of Utah Library. There, vacationers will be able to experience a unique exhibit called "'These Are My People!' The Story of Aristides de Sousa Mendes."
Vacationers who check out the interesting exhibition will have the chance to learn the story of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a Portuguese diplomat who helped 30,000 people escape World War II. The hero made a path from Spain to Portugal, allowing individuals to flee the country. The display showcases 20 beautiful photographs and guests will be able to view a number of fascinating records and texts as well.
Those who want to experience the brilliant display can do so until May 29. On May 1, Utah governor Gary R Herbert, Mendes' grandson and other officials will recognize the exhibit by celebrating Holocaust Commemoration Day.
The president of the United Jewish Federation of Utah, Martin Gelman, said that Aristides de Sousa Mendes is very important as he highlights how a single individual can make a huge difference on the lives of many.
