In the 1960s, Che Guevara put his ideas into action by doing volunteer work

In 1960, Che Guevara (1928 - 1967) developed the concept of the "new socialist man" that would favor the general interest in altruistic aspirations. He emphasized the importance of voluntary work and sought to set an example on weekends, offering to work in factories, sugarcane fields and ports.

This tradition continues in Cuba, a model of international solidarity, like Cuban doctors, who work in several countries around the world voluntarily.

These photos, which had never been published, were part of a private album, recently discovered in France, but with no information about the owner. They were probably taken by a person who lived with Che Guevara during his volunteer work.

The first photo was taken in February 1962, somewhere in Camagüey, Cuba. In it, he shows that sugar cane can be cut mechanically. The following photos show him participating in the construction of a school, also in Cuba, in November 1961.

Was Che Guevara a national hero, romanticized by the Cuban Revolution, or an uncompromising terrorist? We will never know for sure, as his life story reflects a little of both. These three never-before-seen photographs are new testimony to the human side of his legendary life.
