Sao Paulo, Brazil (Aug. 25)
After five years of forced publication in Portuguese, the newspaper "Yiddishe Presse" appeared today in Yiddish. The Jewish community celebrated the event.
A government decree in 1941 prohibited the publication in Brazil of all foreign-language newspapers including Yiddish. The country’s three Yiddish newspapers were given the alternative of either suspending publication or converting to Portuguese and they chose the latter course.
