The digital portal Portugal 1914-1918 has been created to present the history of Portugal and Portuguese soldiers during the First World War, and to stimulate active interest for the centenary of the First World War. The portal is an initiative of the Instituto de História Contemporânea at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. On the portal a virtual memorial will be created of Portuguese soldiers serving in Flanders and Africa. The portal promotes the project Memories of World War I 1914-1918 with the aim of presenting materials given by Portuguese people eventually at the European portal Europeana 1914-1918. The portal can be viewed in Portuguese and English.
