Presentation of the Book “Elas estiveram nas prisões do fascismo”
On July 20th at 6:30pm we will present at the Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom the book “Elas estiveram nas prisões do fascismo” [They were in the prisons of fascism] by the Union of Portuguese Antifascist Resisters.
A tribute to all the Portuguese women who, in times of fear, silence and oppression, fought the fascist dictatorship.
The book, which intends to be a contribution to “rescue from relative oblivion the relevant role of women in the fight against the Fascist Dictatorship,” includes in an annex a list with the names of 1,755 women imprisoned in the jails of fascism, which are listed, according to Eduardo Brissos, in the Register of Prisoners (PVDE/PIDE), with about 30,000 records and in the PIDE archives consulted at the Torre do Tombo.
