Our heroes and martyrs have not been forgotten

Raul HomenajeArmy General Raúl Castro Ruz honored heroes and martyrs of the Cuban Revolution in Santiago’s Santa Ifigenia Cemetery, on the very day chosen in 1959 to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for the good of the nation.

Before the simple tomb of the País García family, in honor of the 62nd anniversary of the murders of Frank and Raúl Pujol, Raúl joined the people of Santiago de Cuba for a special moment recalling the young hero.

Accompanied by Beatriz Johnson Urrutia, a Council of State vice president and president of the Provincial Assembly of People’s Power, the Army General paid his respects to José Martí, laying flowers beside the crypt that holds his remains and then made his way to the giant boulder where Fidel´s ashes lie, depositing a white rose in a simple gesture honoring his brother, the leader of the Cuban Revolution.
