It is with sorrow that the Brazil Institute and the Latin American Program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars learned this morning about the tragic death of Dr. Zilda Arns Neumann in the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday. The sad news was confirmed by her brother, Paulo Evaristo Arns, the former cardinal of São Paulo, and by the Brazilian government. Dr. Arns was 75. "She died in the cause she has always believed," said Cardinal Arns in a statement. According to news reports, 14 Brazilian soldiers of the U.N. mission in Haiti are also among the dead.
