Copies of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” infamous anti-Semitic canard, are now on sale in book stores in this city and in other Brazilian centers, the Confederation of Brazilian Jews reported here today.

Leaders of the Jewish community, calling attention to the dissemination of the “Protocols,” noted that they had requested government officials, some months ago, to ban the anti-Semitic book, but declared that no steps in that direction have as yet been taken by the authorities.
