Brazil Bans Broadcast of Record Containing Nazi Speeches

Download PDF for this date

The broadcast of a record entitled “Hitler’s Hell,” which claims it “exposes” the iniquities of the Nazi regime, was banned from the Brazilian radio and television networks today in an order issued by the government censor, Walter Mello.

According to the censor, the record actually contains speeches by Hitler, Goebbcls, and other top Nazis, as well as aural reproduction of Hitlerian marches. A narration was arranged for the record here in Portuguese. Originally the record was produced in the United States.
