Documents by Che Guevara included in Memory of the World Registry

July, 22 – A collection of documents titled Life and Work of Che has been included in the Memory of the World Registry of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization –UNESCO-.

The one thousand and seven documents by the Cuban-Argentinean guerrilla registered in the prestigious UNESCO list include 431 original manuscripts, first and foremost, his Field Diary in Bolivia; 567 documents written about his life and work; valuable iconography and cinematographic material; maps and museum pieces.

At a Havana ceremony, the Memory of the World National Committee President, researcher Berarda Salabarría, stressed that the UNESCO list must be honored by keeping documents by one of the most illustrious men in the history of mankind, guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara, whose work has gone far beyond the Third World to become universal and beyond his Marxist, anti-dogmatic, humanistic and revolutionary theory and practice.

His image presides over all claims for justice as a beacon of all just causes, noted Salabarría, during a ceremony held at the Morro – Cabaña military fortress.

These texts now join Cuban National Hero José Marti’s documents and the ICAIC Latin American News Reel by the Cuban Film Institute, previously included in the prestigious UNESCO Registry.
