Pela Patria

Pela Patria ("For the Fatherland", a phrase from the Portuguese National Anthem) was a monthly Magazine published in 1940-41 by the Portuguese community in Shanghai. About half of the articles are in Portuguese and half in English. It captured an invaluable record of the life and people in that city, four years after occupation by the Japanese in 1937, and contains many photos of Macanese (unfortunately, of poor quality). The community there, feeling under threat and obviously economically stressed and insecure, tried hard to maintain their Portuguese identity and cohesion with articles on Portuguese history and culture, through social events, and by promoting lessons on the Portuguese language. But it could not last: with the outbreak of World War II in the Pacific in December 1941 the whole community dispersed, never to reassemble.

We are fortunate that a bound copy of the entire series survives in the JM Braga Collection in the National Library of Australia. Its hundreds of pages were laboriously photographed by Dr Stuart Braga and reproduced here.

S. Paulo: The dominant and unforgettable symbol of Macau for the last 400 years has been the great Church of the Mother of God (commonly called St Paul), begun in 1602. The façade, all that now remains, was completed in 1637. The church itself was destroyed by fire in 1835, but the great stone facade endures, the finest European building in the Far East. Several recent books celebrate Macau's unique heritage of church and military architecture.

A monthly Magazine published in 1940-41 by the Portuguese community in Shanghai. About half of the articles are in Portuguese, the rest in English. It provides valuable insight into life in that city, four years after occupation by the Japanese in 1937, and contains many photos of Macanese. The community there, feeling under threat and obviously economically stressed and insecure, tried hard to maintain their Portuguese identity and cohesion with articles on Portuguese history and culture, through social events, and by promoting lessons on the Portuguese language. But it could not last: with the outbreak of World War II in the Pacific in December 1941 the whole community dispersed, never to reassemble.

Pela Patria

Pela Patria ("For the Fatherland", a phrase from the Portuguese National Anthem) was a monthly Magazine published in 1940-41 by the Portuguese community in Shanghai. About half of the articles are in Portuguese and half in English. It captured an invaluable record of the life and people in that city, four years after occupation by the Japanese in 1937, and contains many photos of Macanese (unfortunately, of poor quality). The community there, feeling under threat and obviously economically stressed and insecure, tried hard to maintain their Portuguese identity and cohesion with articles on Portuguese history and culture, through social events, and by promoting lessons on the Portuguese language. But it could not last: with the outbreak of World War II in the Pacific in December 1941 the whole community dispersed, never to reassemble.

We are fortunate that a bound copy of the entire series survives in the JM Braga Collection in the National Library of Australia. Its hundreds of pages were laboriously photographed by Dr Stuart Braga and reproduced here.

Click to see its contents, which provide links to individual pages of the magazine and, for the Public website, hundreds of links to peoples' Personal Pages. Descendants of Macanese from Shanghai will enjoy browsing through the magazine and may even find mention of their relatives.

National Anthem of Portugal

 

Maria da Fonte

A patriotic Portuguese hymn; it was sung by Portuguese prisoners-of-war of the Japanese in Hong Kong during World War II to boost their morale. (Les Fisher's book, I will Remember p. 119, makes a mention of this: The same evening the draft of 200 left for an unknown destination. As it left the lads gave three cheers for the camp commandant Honda, because he is the onlyh one we haved had who has been decent to us. As they left they sang a Portuguese marching song. Honda and all the guards then stood to attention thinking it was the national anthem.
Os membros portugueses do Corpo Voluntário de Defesa de Hong Kong adoptaram, nos campos de prisioneiros-de-guerra, uma marcha, "Maria da Fonte"*.
 
De acordo com Luigi Gosano, os japoneses proibiram o canto de qualquer Hino Nacional, então, os prisioneiros portugueses animavam os espíritos a cantar "Maria da Fonte".
*Maria foi uma mulher do lugar de Fontarcada, em Portugal, que iniciou uma revolução na região do Minho, Portugal, em 1846 contra as políticas impopulares do ministro do governo António Bernardo da Costa Cabral. Isto deu origem à queda do governo. A revolução do Minho ficou com o nome dela. Angelo Frondoni compôs esta música que rapidamente ganhou popularidade e se tornou quase num segundo hino nacional português.
The Portuguese members of the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Corps adopted in Prisoner-of-War camp a rousing marching song, "Maria da Fonte"*.
 
According to Luigi Gosano, the Japanese forbade the singing of any national anthem, so the Portuguese prisoners raised their spirits by singing instead "Maria da Fonte".
 
*     Maria was a woman from the parish of Fontarcada in Portugal who sparked an uprising in the district of Minho, Portugal in 1846 against the unpopular policies of government minister António Bernardo da Costa Cabral. This led to the overthrow of the government. The Minho Revolution was named after her. Angelo Frondoni composed this tune which quickly gained popularity and is almost a second Portuguese national anthem.

Unga casa macaista

A popular traditional Portuguese song with Macanese words
 

Patuá

Unga casa macaísta vôs olá
Têm carinho na pobréza
Si têm gente batê pórta pôde entrá
Vêm comê cô nos na mêsa
Genti pobre, genti rico sâ gostá
Cativá tudo visita
Masqui seza unga casita
Têm su chiste cô alegria
Tudo óra, tudo dia.
 
Mêsa cô toália bordado
Vaso di fûla na châm
Pisunto china bafado
Têm galinha, têm capám.
Porco balichám tamarinho
Vaca chaucháu maragoso:
Unga caneca cô vinho
Quanto bebinga sábrôso
Unga casa macaísta fazê vista
Sâ fazê vista unga casa macaísta
 
Siara-siara sabe abrí su coraçám
Lôgo ri pa tudo genti
Na janela sâ cherá mangericám
Fazê vôs ficá contente.
Tem biscoito cô ôbrêa na fontám
Camalénga feto dóci
Chá-co-sucri dóci-dóci
Tudo óra têm na mesa
Quim querê fazê fineza.

Attempt at translation to English

A Macanese house, you will find
Has love even in poverty
Anyone knocking on the door can enter
And eat with us at the table.
Both the poor and the rich like
to be charmed on every visit.
Although the house might be small
it is enlivened by joy
all the time, every day.
 
The table set with embroidered cloth
A flower pot on the floor
Boiled Chinese ham
There is chicken, there is capon
Pork with tamarind and balichão
Beef stir-fried with bitter melon
A jug of wine
A Macanese house is something to behold
Quite a sight is a Macanese house.
 
The ladies know how to open their hearts
They will laugh at all the people
At the window wafts the scent of basil
To lift your spirits.
There are wafer biscuits in the pantry
Candied winter melon
Tea sweetened with sugar
Is always at the table
Whoever wants to can be polite.
 

La Salle College (Kowloon) School Song
