Brazil Ponders Ban on Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Chancellor Hitler’s reported meeting with Hans Henning, Brazil’s Nazi leader, brought a demand from the Chamber of Deputies last night for a Government decision as to whether foreign political groups should be permitted if they operate under orders issued in their native countries, the Havas News Agency reported.

The Government was asked first to ascertain whether Henning actually had conferred with the Fuehrer. With this in mind, the Government was asked whether Nazism was to be recognized in Brazil.
