Hi Rocky_Shorz,

Blumenau is indeed in the southern part of Brazil where the first language is German. Also it's true that many Nazis came, not only to Brazil, but Argentina, Paraguay and also the US, during the 'Paperclip' times.

I've never been to the place as it is an extremely long way away - I'm in the northeast, almost the most eastern part of Brazil if you look on a map, but have seen it on TV and it is architectureally (?) typically German (or Austrian) and quite a wealthy part of Brazil.

I'm sure that Monique could give you more info as she's from São Paulo - I think!

Best regards,

Steve

P.S. Give me the links for the threads you want to be merged.

As a German city, Blumenau was highly influenced by. Hitler...
