Dominican Republic celebrates anniversary of birth of Juan Bosch

Santo Domingo, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) The Dominican Liberation Party (PLD) will conduct a series of activates in celebration of the 113th anniversary of the birth of Professor Juan Bosch.

The above was reported by the PLD in a press release, in which it also announced that the traditional floral offering was made on Wednesday at the Ornamental Cemetery of La Vega, in the province of the same name, where Bosch was born.

Bosch was an outstanding personality of the letters and history of Latin America.

He lived the first years of his childhood in a small rural community in La Vega called Río Verde. During his youth he worked in commercial establishments, later he traveled to Spain, Venezuela and some Caribbean islands.

He was imprisoned by the regime of dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, in 1938 he established himself in Puerto Rico and then traveled to Cuba, where he directed the edition of the complete works of Eugenio María de Hostos.

In 1939, in coordination with other political exiles, he founded the Dominican Revolutionary Party and actively worked on the formation of an anti-Trujillista front headed by his organization.

He returned to Santo Domingo in 1961 after the execution of Trujillo, having been in exile for 23 years; on February 27th, 1963 he assumed the presidency of the Dominican Republic by popular election, but his government was overthrown by a military coup sponsored by conservative forces.

Prevented from returning to power by the military intervention of the United States with the support of the Organization of American States, he traveled to Spain, where he developed an extraordinary literary work, and where he died in 2001.
