Jews in Argentina Thank Peron for Admitting Refugees Who Were Refused Entry in Brazil

A letter thanking General Peron for allowing 47 Jewish refugees from Italy to land in Argentina after they had been refused entry into Brazil was sent today by the DAIA, central representative body of Argentina Jews.

Permission for the refugees to enter Argentina was given by the Government following intervention by the DAIA. The 47 Jews had Brazilian visas, but were denied entry into Brazil because they arrived four days after expiration of the visas.
