They evoke the figure and work of the historian Emilio Roig de Leuchsenring

The Office of the Historian of Havana (OHC) today publishes its cultural bulletin, dedicated to the researcher and ethnologist Emilio Roig de Leuchsenring on the 133rd anniversary of his birth.

The city’s first historian, also a lawyer, journalist and patriot, assumed that role in 1935 and “paved a fruitful and creative path that has brought us to the Office we have today,” the publication asserts.

The OHC invites to the exhibition The greatest apostle of our freedoms. Jose Marti in Emilio Roig, curated by a team of experts in documentary heritage. It will take place at the headquarters of the Lombillo Palace from August 23.

The exhibition, also available in virtual format, will cover the journalistic work of Roig, focused on the historical safeguarding of the National Hero of Cuba in the year of his centenary.

This exhibition complements the actions to pay tribute to the founder of the OHC, maintaining the tradition, begun in the 1960s, of celebrating “always his birth, never his death”, in the words of Doctor Eusebio Leal Spengler.

The OHC is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the inscription of the Historic Center of Old Havana and its system of fortifications on the World Heritage list of the United Nations Fund for Education, Science and Culture.
