He signs a color postcard photo of the eternal flame at Havana's Museum of the Revolution. The postcard also bears a printed Castro quotation.
Postcard signed: "Fidel Castro Ruz" on front. Color, 8¾x5¼. Cuban postcard (imprinted in Spanish, not translated) depicting The Eternal Flame at the Museum of the Revolution in Havana, Cuba. Quote by Castro on front; captioned on verso. The caption mentions that the quote is from a speech given by Castro at the Central University of Venezuela on February 3, 1999. The speech mentioned common interests and the need to work and fight to preserve those interests and not lose heart. While a student, Fidel Castro (1926-2016) twice abandoned his studies in favor of revolutionary pursuits: in 1947, he went to the Dominican Republic to participate in an attempt to overthrow Generalissimo Rafael Trujillo; in 1948, he participated in urban riots in Bogata, Columbia. Although he started a law practice in 1950, within three years he was again involved in rebel activities; this time in his own country against Fulgencio Batista. On January 1, 1959, Batista fled the country, and Castro took over as Premier, a title he would hold until 1976, when he became President of the Council of State and the Council of Ministers. Although Castro's Marxist-Leninist principles and alignment with the former Soviet Union isolated Cuba in the Western Hemisphere and antagonized the United States, his regime outlasted its former Soviet patron. Fine condition.
