Excerpt:

 

Many foreign fugitives passed through the Quinta do Carmo (illustrated) in Alentejo during WW2. The Quinta sheltered hundreds of English, Belgian, French and Polish combatants who had escaped from prisons in Germany or occupied countries. From the Alentejo they continued their journey to Lisbon and from there to England. The man who pulled the strings of these operations was Victor Hunter Reynolds, and Englishman born in Lisbon and administrator of the Quinta.
