Juan Domingo Perón (8 October 1895 – 1 July 1974) was an Argentinian officer who became president of Argentina (1946–52, 1952–55, 1973–74) and who was founder and leader of the Peronist movement.

Unusually, even Wikipedia describes Perón as rather positive both towards the Axis powers of WWII and towards Jews. He criticized the Nuremberg trials and allowed some alleged WWII war criminals to move to Argentina. He is also stated to have had Jewish advisors, expressed sympathy for Jewish rights, quickly established diplomatic relations with Israel, and Argentina accepted more Jewish immigrants than any other country in Latin America.
