  1. I’ll be looking forward to this one. I always gravitate towards stories of the unsung hero's of Nazi Germany.

  2. I actually never new of Brazil’s involvement in WW2 until recently reading a historical novel. It was about a Jewish man native to Poland that was stuck in France. The Brazilian diplomat gave him refugee status and most likely save his life, plus thousands more. This is definitely something that I’d be interested in watching.

    1. You do remember that half of the Nazis runaway to Brazil and Amazon after the war?

    2. That much I knew. We don’t learn much of the wars other than the political aspect of our involvement and the triggers of how it started. My grandfather fought in world war 2, but we don’t talk about it much since he was a Sicilian farmer at the time that was forced to fight for Mouselini. Even those stories haven’t made its way to me.

    4. Agreed! All I know in the end is that he was ultimately the reason why all the whole family fled to the US and contracted hepatitis on the way in. Sadly, most died pretty quickly except for one sister who had a livery transplant. She passed away at 88 a few years back.
