Portuguese refugees in Denmark in the 1960s and early 1970s
Book launch and seminar at the European Parliament Liaison Office/Europa-Huset.
The event is part of a larger European project (#ECOS), where researchers have finally begun to look at the archives and collect memories from the young people who fled the dictatorship that lasted until the Carnation Revolution on 25 April, 1974. Some of the Portuguese deserters from the colonial wars who got asylum in Denmark will tell about their personal history, and a Portuguese history Professor will tell about the radicalization process that took place in Portugal up to the coup. The seminar takes place in Danish and English. The book is handed out free of charge in connection with participation in the seminar. Portuguese refreshments with a glass of wine will be served.
Registration no later than 20 November Ana Vera.
