Armed Men Invade Office of Jewish Cultural Association in Buenos Aires, Steal Records

August 27, 1942
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Three armed men, believed to be members of one of the Nazi groups in this city, today invaded the offices of the Jewish Cultural Association here and fled with membership records and other files.

The gunmen wounded a woman caretaker and overpowered three members of the Association who were in the headquarters when the robbery took place. Despite the fact that Argentina has seemed to be leaning slightly toward the United Nations since Brazil’s declaration of war, anti-Semitic agitation by Nazi newspapers and groups in the country is still allowed to continue unmolested.
