dc.description.abstractThis study presents a proposal for a historical itinerary based on the “sites of memory” resulting from the presence in Figueira da Foz (a coastal city in central Portugal) of refugees from the Second World War. This seaside resort was one of the places chosen by the Salazar regime to receive refugees on a temporary basis while they were waiting to embark to other countries or continents. Drawing upon historical documentation, literary works and memoirs, this study identifies and map out the places inhabited and frequented by these refugees during their stay in the city. The aim is to connect the intangible values of European history with the history of the city and its civic culture By valorizing the local heritage, it also seeks to maximize its potential to become a cultural-tourist product, enabling its integration into transnational cultural circuits within the framework of the European Union’s policy for cross-border
dc.description.abstractEn este estudio se presenta una propuesta de itinerario histórico que toma como referencia “lugares de la memoria” de la presencia de refugiados de la II Guerra Mundial en Figueira da Foz, región central de Portugal. Este destino vacacional fue uno de los lugares escogidos por el régimen salazarista para acoger refugiados, mientras esperaban para embarcar rumbo a otros destinos. A partir de documentación histórica, se identifican los lugares donde vivieron o que frecuentaron. El recorrido trazado al articular los valores intangibles de la historia europea con la historia de la ciudad, de la cultura cívica con la valorización del patrimonio local, tiene potencial para convertirse en un producto turístico-cultural. Asimismo, esa combinación permite integrarlo en circuitos culturales trasnacionales, en el marco de la política regional transfronteriza de la Unión Europea, que tienen como principal objetivo la liberación de Europa del dominio nazi o el escape de la Europa
