Important Cuban Documents Added to Memory of the World

We are really very glad ‘cause a group of important Cuban document archives were added to the Memory of the World Program of the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization this week.

The collection on Jose Marti included some two thousands documents about the life and work of the Cuban national hero and the most complete film collection of significant events that took place in Cuba and the rest of the region between 1959 and 1990 are part of the legacy.

Also included were documentary collections “Life and Work of Ernesto Che Guevara” and “In a Canoe from the Amazons to the Caribbean”, an expedition carried out in 1987 led by the Cuban speleologist, Antonio Núñez Jiménez, following the route of pre-historic tribes from the Amazonian basins to mark their discovery of this geographic area.

The archives added to UNESCO's program was completed with the Historical Archives of Cuban surveyor Serafín Sanchez Govin, and the Collection of documents about people who have visited the Hotel National of Cuba and events that have been hosted by the National Monument facility.

Since 1992 UNESCO’s Memory of the World Program was created to preserve valuable archive holdings and world heritage’s collections.
