The Brazilian Government is sympathetic to President Truman’s attempts to aid the Jews of Europe, Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Souza Leao Grace told Rabbi Samuel Wohl of Cincinnati, who is making a tour of Latin America. The minister, who received Rabbi Wohl today, declared that his government is still studying the situation and has not yet arrived at a policy in relation to the Jews.
