Rodolfo Walsh’s legacy honored in Cuba

On Twitter, the writer noted that Walsh’s work contributed to the construction of the Testimony genre. His novels Operación Masacre (Operation Massacre) and ¿Quién mató a Rosendo? (Who killed Rosendo?)were pioneers in this field.

On Thursday, in a tribute ceremony held at the Argentinian embassy in this capital for that nation’s Day of Remembrance for Truth and Justice, diplomats, journalists and activists recognized Walsh’s literary practice as a testimony and denunciation of the civil-military dictatorship in Argentina, established after the 1976 coup d’état.

Walsh participated in the foundation of Prensa Latina news agency and managed to decipher the secret messages that revealed the US plans to invade Cuba through Bay of Pigs, in April 1961, with Cuban exiles.

The fighter was assassinated by a task force of the Escuela de Mecánica de la Armada (Higher School of Mechanics of the Navy) after disseminating a writer’s Open Letter to the Military Junta, a document that exposed the human rights violations and horrors perpetrated by his country’s dictatorship.

His remains as well as those of many victims of the regime (1976-1983) remain missing.
