Chargé d’Affaires at the Chilean Representation in Bucharest, Romania, assisted Romanian and Polish Jews in Romania and Transnistria. He issued approximately 1200 Chilean passports through 1942, protecting their holders from deportation. When the Romanian government challenged the passports, he directly intervened on behalf of Jews “under the protection of Chile.” He was honored as Righteous Among the Nations on November 23, 2016.
