Cuban President highlights essences of historical memory

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel stressed this Friday that the omen of victory during the U.S. aggression on Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs) in 1961 is part of the essence of historical memory.


‘The lyrics of the Elegia de los zapaticos blancos and the story of Nemesia constitute one of the most moving chronicles of the events of Giron. They are the essence of our historical memory,’ the head of state added on Twitter.

In the tweet, Diaz-Canel shared an article from the newspaper Granma in which he recalls the story of Nemesia Rodriguez, resident of the Ciénaga de Zapata on April 17, 1961, through which a mercenary force supported by the United States tried to defeat the Revolution.

Jesus Orta Ruiz, the Nabori Indian, turned into poetry that passage in which Nemesia lost her mother, a victim of the bombs, and could not put on white shoes when she turned 15.

The Giron invasion was preceded by air strikes at the airports of Ciudad Libertad (Havana), San Antonio de los Baños (west) and Santiago de Cuba (east). In less than 72 hours the mercenaries were defeated.
