Memory of Cuban Nation – instrument for the transformation of the Cuban society to the real freedom

Post Bellum / Ministerstvo zahraničních věcí ČR

TRANSITION PROMOTION PROGRAM In 2017, Post Bellum, in partnership with Florida international University, created the Memory of Cuban Nation project to honor the Cuban dissidents and activists. This project, funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic through the Transformation Cooperation Program, seeks to record the personal stories and experiences of dissidents resisting the totalitarian regime in Cuba. These witnesses’ stories will be recorded and presented at a conference in Miami this Fall, which will be focused on the 21st Century fight against totalitarian regimes. The recordings will also be preserved in our online archive Memory of Nations. Our goals for this project are to expand our archive of memories to include the stories of Cuban dissidents, to shed light on the current situation in Cuba, and especially to spread this information to the people of Cuba.
