A Jewish group reportedly launched a campaign to clear the name of a man known as the “Portuguese Dreyfus.” The Jerusalem-based Amishav organization is trying to persuade the government of Portugal to posthumously clear the name of Arthur Barros Basto, according to the Jerusalem Post. Basto was a Jewish army captain driven out of the Portuguese military on trumped-up charges in the 1940s.
