NOW IN GREEK: CHINESE CUBANS IN THE CUBAN REVOLUTION
Cuba’s Ambassador in Greece, Zelmys María Domínguez Cortina and book editor Natasha Terlexi of publisher Diethnes Vima, speak at the May 30, 2021 book launch of Our History Is Still Being Written: The Story of Three Chinese Cuban Generals in the Cuban Revolution. The book is a series of interviews with Armando Choy, Gustavo Chui and Moisés Sío Wong, three Chinese Cuban generals who joined the revolutionary struggle in Cuba as teenagers.
Behind the speakers were attractive large covers of the book in the six different languages — English, Spanish, French, Farsi, Chinese and now Greek.
Natasha Terlexi, chief editor for Diethnes said “This new book is the 12th in a series of books published by Diethnes Vima on the history and program of the Cuban Revolution.
“For many it is a surprise to know that the Cuban nation was nourished not only from Africa and Spain but also from China,” Domínguez Cortina said. “In Havana a monument is erected to the fighters of Chinese origin with a phrase that highlights the pride and dignity of those, since it says, ‘There was not one Chinese-Cuban traitor.’”
