Portuguese emigration to Colmar during Estado Novo: the organization of a community
Francisco Esteves *
The early 1960s marked a change in the typology of Portuguese emigration, characterized by a shift of the migratory flow to the European continent, featuring France as its main destination. Within the vast literature on Portuguese emigration to France, the lack of studies focused on the Portuguese communities of Alsace prompted the elaboration of a paper on the Portuguese in Colmar. This paper constitutes a first attempt at drafting the organization of the Portuguese community in its early times.
