O Mundo das Sombras is incorporated in this blog

In order to organize all the materials of my research I decided today to incorporate in this blog posts previously published in another blog I created in the year 2005, which covers the same topic, but written in Portuguese, named O Mundo das Sombras. See it here. From now on the posts will be written in both languages.

Propaganda

Source: IWM

British and Axis propaganda were side to side during WW2. Both were trying to win the hearts of the Portuguese people. People in the streets were anxious to be informed the progress of the war. Censorship of the Portuguese Press prevented free information. 
This photograph taken in 1940 shows crowdy citizens in Rossio reading the front pages of the newspapers. Antonio Telo [Propaganda e Guerra Secreta em Portugal, P&R, 1990, see cover here] was the first scholar to study these events.
