Argentina’s Foreign Ministry announced Tuesday that it would repeal a 1938 memorandum ordering Argentine diplomats not to issue visas and safe-conduct passes for Jews. The repeal of Circular 11 was the latest in a number of moves by President Nestor Kirchner’s government to differentiate itself from other Argentine governments that supported or abetted the Nazis and closed doors to Jewish immigration before, during and after World War II.
