AJCommittee
Received In Brazil

Buenos Aires (JTA)
Brazil's Foreign Minister
Fernando Henrique Cardozo
told a visiting delegation of
the American Jewish Corn-
• mittee that his aspiration is
to be jointly honored by his
country's Jewish and Arab
communities.
The AJCommittee dele-
gates met last week with Mr.
Cardozo in Brasilia, the
Brazilian capital, on the first
leg of a South American tour
that was also to include
Argentina, Uruguay and
Chile.
The Jewish group re-
viewed with the foreign min-
ister Brazil's improving re-
lationship with the Jewish
state, noting, for example,
an upswing in trade between
the two countries.
The AJCommittee dele-
gates remarked on a study
showing a notable change
for the better in Brazil's ties
with Israel. Only a few years
ago, Brazil had a record of
frequent votes against Israel
in the United Nations.
This trend appears to be
changing, the AJCommittee
said.
The meeting with Mr.
Cardozo was considered im-
portant in light of the fact
that Brazil, which has a
large Arab community, was
known for trading arms for
oil with several Arab coun-
tries.
Mr. Cardozo reminded the
delegates how he had been
honored by both Brazil's
Arab and Jewish com-
munities within a short time
span and said: "My aspira-
tion is to receive an homage
from the two communities
together."
The AJC mission, led by
Lawrence Thorpe, told Mr.
Cardozo that it supported
the government's initiative
to sponsor a study of the first
Jewish community on the
South American continent,
the early 16th-century com-
munity of Recife.
Recife's first Jews were
conversos, secret Jews who
escaped the Inquisition on
the Iberian Peninsula and
founded one of the first Jew-
ish communities in the
Americas.
After finding refuge in
Brazil, they were later
persecuted by the Portu-
guese. A group of 23 of these
Jews immigrated to New
York, founding the first Jew-
ish community in North
America in 1654.

The AJCommittee's 20-
member fact-finding mission
visited three cities in Brazil,
where about 150,000 Jews
live among the general
population of 150 million.
Jewish leaders said anti-
Semitism was under control,
but said they are aware of
the dangers of Brazil's ex-
plosive social situation,
which could turn the Jewish
community, most of it mem-
bers of the middle and upper
classes, into scapegoats.
On the same day that the
AJCommittee delegation
left Brazil for Argentina,
Brazil's President Itamar
Franco declared a "state of
social emergency" in the
wake of a government
disclosure that 32 million
people, 21 percent of the
population, live in abject
poverty.

German Women
Recall Event

Berlin (JTA) — Some 300
people gathered here last
weekend to commemorate
an event of 50 years ago
when hundreds of non-
Jewish women staged a
weeklong, successful protest
to get back their Jewish
husbands and children, who
had been arrested by the

Nazis.

In a ceremony in front of
the former detention center,
the chairman of the Berlin
Jewish community, Jerzy
Kanal, spoke of one of the
only examples of open
courage and solidarity dur-
ing the Holocaust that met
with success.
One can learn from this
uprising, said Mr. Kanal,
that there is no reason to
believe that resistance to the
Nazis was impossible. He
called for the erection of a
Jewish center in the place
where that detention center
once stood.
He also called on Jews to
show solidarity with
threatened minority groups
in these troubled times.
Christine Bergmann, a
senator from Berlin, spoke of
"the powerless who over-
came the powerful." This
should be remembered now,
she said, as racism and anti-
Semitism once more rear
their ugly heads in Ger-
many. .
"We should not walk away
from extreme right tenden-
cies in our society," she said.
