Hans and Margret Rey (authors and creators of Curious George) were saved from the Holocaust in June of 1940 by getting visas from Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese Counsel, in Bordeaux, France, against the orders of the Portuguese government. It's been reported that Sousa Mendes issued 30,000 visas to refugees allowing them to escape the Nazi hordes.

The story of Sousa Mendes is one of bravery and humanitarianism. His great saving work resulted in his losing his post, his right to earn a living, and the loss of his family home. If he had not issued a visa to Mr. and Mrs. Rey it's likely that Curious George might never have been available for KPBS!
