  chancho: Here's the link, but the pickings are rather slim:

Jul-17-10  jerseybob: Chancho: Thanks. Here's what I piece together from the slim pickings: Wexler got out of Europe while the getting was good sometime in the 30's or 40's and ended up in Argentina, where a slew of European masters and GMs had already moved, many after the 1939 Olympiad. It was a good place to improve your chess, as Bolbochan once remarked. Politically, something else entirely.
