Assunto:  Where do you get your new books from?
 
Mensagem: 

A buck is a buck, Deivis.  I have to think about my old age.  :-)

 

Have you read "Brasil sob a suastica"?  Interesting.  The Germans weren't quite as organized as they could have been, but sometimes the information they gathered could alert U-boats to ships leaving Brazilian ports.

 

Curitiba has a nice World War II museum.  I really enjoyed the displays of propaganda.

 

For a scary book, try "Coracoes sujos".  It's about how the Japanese in Brazil refused to believe that Japan was losing (or had lost) the war.  As late as 1950, about 25% believed that Japan had won the war.  People were buying tickets on non-existing steamships to travel to non-existing Japanese colonies in the South Pacific where they had bought non-existing plantations and farms.
