English translation:recovered from the censorship [archives]
Explanation:
It seems that here one is talking about a document "found", "recovered" from the archives of a censorship institution.
RESGATAR, no caso = RECUPERAR = to recover, to find (and to publish it).

Many thanks. I think they are trying to say that they dug these documents out of archives, old files etc.

rescued from censorship / the censor


Explanation:
I wonder if this means that it managed to avoid the censor's stringent measures; in the sense of 'slipped through the net.'
(Not too sure from the context.)

agree  DrSantos: No, it meant that "it was censored, filed, but now it was unveileded" = desvendado.

The censorship ( censure) was recover


Explanation:
à
contracção da preposição a + artigo definido a
contracção da preposição a + pronome demonstrativo a

Precisaria de mais contexto mas tudo indica pelo à que a censura foi resgatada.

Se o texto for brasileiro provavelmente se refere a um momento de repressão politico militar onde a censura foi altamente reprimida por anos, e em tudos os meios de comuniçao.

No dia 1º de Abril de 1964 o Brasil mergulha em uma nova fase da sua história. Durante 21 anos o país viveu um regime de governo militar, que marcou a nação, seu povo e suas instituições. Foram duas décadas de confronto entre forças políticas e sociais. Neste conflito ambos os lados, governo e oposição, utilizaram todos os seus recursos: censura, terrorismo, tortura e guerrilha.

redeem of the censorship or the censorship redeemed.


Explanation:
Ao que me parece o artigo fala do impacto sócio-econômico decorrente do "desemprego" dos censores. Desta forma, acredito que o melhor termo seria - redeem. Serve tanto para o impacto econômico quanto para a reabsorção de certos pulhas no seio amado de nossa pátria.

Main Entry: re·deem
Pronunciation: ri-'dEm
Function: transitive verb
Etymology: Middle English redemen, modification of Middle French redimer, from Latin redimere, from re-, red- re- + emere to take, buy; akin to Lithuanian imti to take
Date: 15th century
1 a : to buy back : REPURCHASE b : to get or win back
2 : to free from what distresses or harms: as a : to free from captivity by payment of ransom b : to extricate from or help to overcome something detrimental c : to release from blame or debt : CLEAR d : to free from the consequences of sin
3 : to change for the better : REFORM
4 : REPAIR, RESTORE
5 a : to free from a lien by payment of an amount secured thereby b (1) : to remove the obligation of by payment <the U.S. Treasury redeems savings bonds on demand> (2) : to exchange for something of value <redeem trading stamps> c : to make good : FULFILL
6 a : to atone for : EXPIATE b (1) : to offset the bad effect of (2) : to make worthwhile : RETRIEVE
