An excerpt from a publication about the number of political prisoners in Cuba created by the Truth About Cuba Committee, April 1964.
The Truth About Cuba Committee was a non-profit organization established by Cuban exiles in Miami in 1961. Their mission was to educate Americans and fellow refugees about communist Cuba and its role in promoting communism throughout Latin America. They published bulletins and reports like this one to draw attention to the repressive activities of Castro’s government in Cuba. The first page of this publication is a map of prisons and concentration camps (described in Spanish), then the second and third pages list the numbers of men and women detained in various kinds of prisons in each Cuban province.
English translation of the text on the map:
Title: Cuba: Captive Island
"Nuestra Denuncia" box at top right:
This map shows how our island has been turned into a huge political prison. The number of prisons and prisoners has been carefully ascertained by the commission for humane treatment of political prisoners in Cuba and the Cuban Commission for Human Rights.
To this we must add 108 slave labor farms operated by the "recruits" for the new Compulsory Military Service.
This graphic has been prepared under the direction of Dr. Miguel A. Olba Benito, Secretary of the Cuban Commission for Human Rights, and Advisor in this matter of the Committee of Cuban Youth Organizations in Exile."
