Lazareff pointed out that he had left France with official permission and even “the advice of several ministers of the Petain cabinet.”

Henri Torres has taken up permanent residence in Rio de Janeiro. He had been scheduled to defend Herschel Grynszpan, young Polish Jew who killed a German embassy official in Paris in 1938.
