    Here’s some very interesting background on the fascinating political/social environment in Brazil during the time of Errol’s visit, and some specifics regarding his anti-Nazi, pro-Pan Americanism activities, including his nationwide radio address on the subject, and his related communication to FDR.

    Here’s a description of the majestic Cateto Palace, where Errol helped Roosevelt advance America’s agenda in Brazil against Hitler. Brazil was a major hotbed for Nazis in South America. President Vargas, a suspected Nazi sympathizer, ultimately committed suicide there. Excellent work, Errol!
