The Junta Patriótica do Norte (JPN) was created a month after Germany’s declaration of war, stating that one of its purposes would be to follow the conflict. However, its efforts were extended and intensified in the postwar period, particularly with respect to assistance to war orphans, the organization of war commemorations, and last but not least, the dissemination and implementation of artistic tributes to the war’s fallen men. This article intends, besides the organic understanding of the institution, to first explore the Junta’s role in the conflict’s mobilization efforts and, second, its role in how the memory – material and immaterial – of World War I in Portugal has be shaped.
