Re: Port of Marseille (France) 1941 shipping records & passenger lists #germany #france

Hi from Paris,

Dear Oliver,

As soon as I read about Jewish German refugees in Marseille in 1941 who could board a ship to Portugal, then USA, I ask myself this question: was Varian Fry involved in their salvation?

I attach a link to his page, as this isn't a very well known story, unfortunately!

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varian_Fry

Now, how to answer your question ?

I have sent a message to the Archives of Marseille, I come back to you when they reply.

Sincerely yours

Bernard Flam
