The Acting Secretary of State to the Embassy in Brazil


A–176. There is no inclination by Department to deviate in any degree from joint commitments agreed to by all the American republics at Chapultepec and set forth in Resolutions VII and XLII83 which were specifically created to eliminate the continuance and prevent the resurgence of Nazi influence in this hemisphere. Therefore the Embassy may well carry out the suggestion contained in the Department’s instruction no. 366 of November 23, 1946 as quoted in Embassy’s A–167 of February 12, 1947.84 Department perceives no conflict [Page 491] between this instruction which is aimed at the removal of those Germans considered dangerous who still remain in Brazil and instructions quoted from Deptel 62 of January 1785 which referred to minor offenders only.

As requested in reference instruction, an up-to-date list of Germans now in Brazil who could be considered dangerous according to standards adopted at Montevideo in Resolution XXVI86 would be useful to the Department.
