  • Cuban Revolutionary History Pics


    I spent some time in Santa Clara a few months back and thought I would share some photos.

    Che Guevara Mausoleum. Underneath is a museum of the revolution and the remains of Guevara and other figures from the revolution. Photography is not allowed inside.

    California? Who is sponsoring this museum? How did they get Che's body there?

        The next photos are from the Battle of Santa Clara. It was the final battle of the revolution in which a supply train was ambushed. After the battle the revolutionary column marched unopposed on Havana.

                  Where’s the pictures of the firing squads weapons that killed thousands of opposition members including teenagers without a trial?

                    Hopefully in a well sealed coffin....
                    Dr. Guevara was an interesting and effective battle strategist. Rather a brutal man....

                      I think that when you reduce in this way and allow emotion to be the primary concern you lose the opportunity to examine very important history. It seems a bit cold but can be more productive in the analysis.

                          That's an interesting example of the point made in post #11 of emotional judgement precluding an opportunity to learn. You are assuming my politics and residence, both incorrectly, from some pictures I took and chose to share because of historical curiosity and a thought that others might share my curiosity about the Cuban Revolution in a history forum.

                              That's very difficult to do in the country. I asked some pointed political questions. The two guys I paid to show me Santa Clara tried to answer in a very round-about way, including answers as if they were discussion during the tour. Both of them were well educated but direct answers are problematic because of strict political control and censorship - to the point of making what you say publicly or privately a jail-able offence.
