I am not sure whether the Chilean Consul helped any Czernowitz Jews
avoid deportation to Transnistria. But in case other actions
of the Chilean Consul during that general period are of interest;
In 1940, before the Russians took over the Bukovina,
my parents applied for a visa to go to Chile and were granted one.
Chile was one of the few countries which were granting visas
to European Jews.
At that time there was no Chilean Consul in Czernowitz.

I know that I read somewhere, that there were in Czernowitz
Polish Jews who had visas to immigrate to Chile and that their fate
was debated by the Romanian authorities, but I do not remember
whether they were deported to Transnistria or not.
