Brazil declared war on Germany and was a member of the Allied powers during World War II. No immovable property—private, communal, or heirless—was confiscated from Jews or other targeted groups in Brazil during the war. As a result, no immovable property restitution laws were required. Brazil endorsed the Terezin Declaration in 2009 and the Guidelines and Best Practices in 2010.
