Férias com Salazar

Translated title of the contribution: On Holiday with Salazar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The book is the result of Garnier’s interviews and socialising with the President of the Council two years earlier, both in the Santo António Fort in Estoril, and during the holidays she was invited to spend at Vimieiro.
The interviews are clearly propaganda. They were intended as a makeover of the dictator’s austere and sombre image, giving him an unsuspected humanity at a time when the country, as a founding member of NATO in 1949 needed, despite its long dictatorship, to be recognized in the Western European bloc, after the end of WWII and the fall of the Italian and Nazi totalitarian regimes. Moreover, on the national scene, the Movimento de Unidade Democrática (MUD) – or ovement for Democratic Unity – appeared in 1945, and independence
movements were springing up in the colonies.
