The Man from Mato Grosso (via Leipzig)

I met this old fellow sitting by the road in the remoter Brazilian outback while on an inspection trip of a large hydroelectric dam on a tributary to the Parana River that AID was financing.  He was a German who had fled Germany after the war.  Was he a Nazi or a Jew?  I didn't ask. But his Brazilian was still heavily accented.
