1940 Hélène runs for a month to Portugal, where she has because of the war, however, remain until 1945. Simone paid Hélène travel to Portugal. She is fascinated and inspired by the new light on the west coast of Portugal. The crystals and reflections of the salt and water are decreasing in their work, then an ever larger space book. Lionel de Roulet, ill with tuberculosis, healed them in Portugal in his mother's house (with the Portuguese artist Carlos Porfirio married off). On 10 May, the day of the invasion of Holland and Belgium by Germany in Lisbon and she comes to meet De Gaulle's personal assistant is Lionel. Lionel founded the Institute Francaise Algarve, with the assistance of Hélène and is secretary of the Chamber of Culture of Faro. Hélène paints a literary and a historical mural of France from Portugal.
