During the dutch occupation in Brazil, specifically during the Conde João Maurício de Nassau government's (1637-1645), a significant number of jews had established themselves in the Brazilian northeast. These men, in the wanting to grow roots and being able to practice their religion, as it had been said by the historiography, they had an active participation in the economic activities and they had become a key part to the development of the Captaincy of Pernambuco. From the peculiarities of this immigration, as well as the importance that jews had during the dutch Brazil, we will try to analyze, through some chronicles, like the ones of the germans travelers Gaspar Barléu and Joan Nieuhof in their respective chronicles História dos feitos recentemente praticados durante oito ano no Brasil and memorável viagem marítima e terrestre ao Brasil, the way that the batavis faced up the jewish presence in the region.(AU)
