Reviews - What do customers think about Aleida Guevara Remembers Her Father, Che?
Che: A lion who tamed fear Oct 1, 2007
This is the product to buy as companion to the book Che Guevara: Self Portrait. Similar, in the technique of a memoir, this time the words you hear are those of his daughter Aleyda, now a woman, a doctor (like her father) and a mother herself, her words based on the remembrances she had left from the days her father, Argentine Ernesto Guevara lived with them. The point of view is composed by many levels: of a woman, of a little girl from four to seven, as a daughter who conforts her mother, as a representative of the family and the people of Cuba for receiving his body.
For Americans this will not be hard to understand if you watched repeatedly the Kennedy photos shown to you in programs remembering his assasination: young Caroline running to his arms and embracing him! If you think this is a profanity, remember the President and Dr. Guevara lived the same tragic period. And the Sixties so hard times, were not only the ones many books and historians have told us; another topic can be added: those were times when little girls lost their fathers.
