Ernst-Prodolliet

Vice-Consul at the Swiss Consulate in Bregrenz, Austria and later Amsterdam, was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations on November 18, 1982 for his many acts to assist Jewish refugees. He issued transit visas to hundreds of Jews trapped at the Austrian border which allowed them to travel via Switzerland. He was disciplined for his actions by the Swiss and moved to Amsterdam. He continued his aid work there, hiding Jews in his home and providing funding to assist with Jewish emigration.
