"Having being issued an Argentine "Ballester Molina" .45 automatic pistol during the war, my Grandfather heard for the first time about the South American country that provided those guns to the British when they were urgently rearming themselves with any weapon that had any military value. He thought it was a fine pistol, and that a country capable of producing such a thing deserved some attention. 

After living for a while in Italy and then in England, he eventually settled in Burzaco, near Buenos Aires City in 1948, where he continued painting, writing and travelling thorough the country, looking for spots where to create his drawings, watercolours, photographs and oil paintings.

Some other people joined him, and began exploring the country as big as Western Europe but with only 15 millions inhabitants at the time. Those fellows included Germans, some of whom reached Argentina before the war as exiled dissidents, and others who came after it.

There was the case, for example, of Siegfried Janett, a 20-year old German born in Argentina. He had a copy of "Mein Kampf" at his home, and in 1939 made himself a raft to cross the Atlantic in order to go to fight for the Vaterland. He was stopped by the coast guard in Northern Brazil and never waved back from his beliefs, albeit he had no trouble in going to climb with Brits, Poles or Argentines."
