In fact it started well before. Germans in Brazil started to immigrate in 1818, Italians in 1870 and the Japanese in 1908.

So many more came after the first and second world wars. Many Nazi criminals with false documents including. Joseph Menguel who died drowned on a beach in Sao Paulo.

Probably taking advantage of there were already colonies in these countries (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile), it would be easy for them to mix, adapt and receive support.

Brazil fought on the side of the allies in WWII, and was responsible for the liberation of many parts of Italy.

In Brazil there was a lot of persecution of these 3 nationalities in that time, speaking these 3 languages were prohibited, there were even concentration camps to arrest Japanese and Germans suspected of collaboration as axis countries.

There are some small towns in the interior that are still predominantly Japanese and of Japanese descent.

The best known are;

Assaí city (Paraná state)
Tomé-Açu city (Pará state)
Ivoti city (Rio Grande do Sul state)
