On 18 October 2018, the Museum of Aljube opened a space for the debate of the shared memory of Tarrafal: how to look at the Tarrafal of Santiago, Cape Verde, more than four decades after it was closed down? How to share this common memory of the Portuguese, Cape Verdean, Guinean and Angolan people?
Maybe the best way is to gather around its meaning.
82 years ago, on 18 October 1936, the first prisoners were sent to the “Penal Colony of Cape Verde”. That’s why we chose this day to open the Exhibition of the Museum of Aljube.
It will be open to the public until 31 March 2019: time to see, to learn and to debate.
