August 26, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

After five years of forced publication in Portuguese, the newspaper "Yiddishe Presse" appeared today in Yiddish. The Jewish community celebrated the event.

A government decree in 1941 prohibited the publication in Brazil of all foreign-language newspapers including Yiddish. The country’s three Yiddish newspapers were given the alternative of either suspending publication or converting to Portuguese and they chose the latter course.
