Zone du contenu et de la structure

Portée et contenu

The papers document professional activities of Norberto Fuentes, a writer and journalist born in Havana who was a close friend of Fidel Castro, and consequently had privileged knowledge of the Cuban secret service during some of the most difficult years of the Cuban Revolution. After spending many years alongside Castro, Fuentes tried to escape the island, was detained and eventually released. He now lives in the United States. Bulk of the materials in this collection display the knowledge Fuentes has about Castro, especially it is evident in the manuscript of The Autobiography of Fidel Castro. The materials also have wealth of information on drug, money laundering, and robberies perpetrated by Cuban agents or coordinated by Cuba.

The papers consist of floppy disks with family photographs, with material about condemned, material about narcotráfico and revolutionary forces. The papers also include cassettes, VHS tapes, CD-ROMs, a manuscript of a book "En la boca del diablo," manuscripts and typescripts of anti-Castro essays, correspondence, notes for "Dulces Guerreros Cubanos," a manuscript and research notes for "El ultimo tren blindado," typescript and research for "Narcotráfico y Tareas Revolucionarias," a manuscript of "La Autobiografía de Fidel Castro," clippings and print-outs of Roberto Fuentes' official web page.
