“A época em que o Brasil barrou milhares de judeus que fugiam do nazismo” (por João Fellet, BBC NEWS Brasil em São Paulo)


Em julho de 1938, o cônsul do Brasil em Budapeste (Hungria), Mário Moreira da Silva, enviou ao ministro das Relações Exteriores, Oswaldo Aranha, uma circular secreta em que informava ter recusado a concessão de vistos a 47 pessoas ‘declaradamente de origem semita’ (judeus) que buscavam migrar para o Brasil.

A reportagem conta com o rico depoimento da professora Dra. Maria Luiza Tucci Carneiro (Departamento de História da USP-SP).

“Exhibit confronts Canada’s rejection of Jewish refugees fleeing Nazis in 1939” (by Omar Sachedina)

“Fleeing Nazi persecution in 1939, more than 900 Jewish refugees boarded the German ocean liner St. Louis. They expected to find a safe haven across the Atlantic — instead, they were denied entry to Cuba, then the United States and, finally, Canada. The exiles returned to Europe, where many were killed in the Holocaust. Through photographs, texts and audiovisual materials, St. Louis – Ship of Fate explores the circumstances that led to this human rights tragedy, including the rise of Nazism, international indifference to the plight of refugees, and the dark history of Canadian immigration and anti-Semitism during the 1930s” (Canadian War Museum).
