According to the Prensa Latina news agency, Guevara March was visiting Caracas and died “as a result of pulmonary thromboembolism that led to a heart attack”. Graduated in Law, Camilo was director of the Centro de Estudos Che Guevara, in Havana, an institution dedicated to perpetuating the work and thought of his father. Camilo Guevara was one of four children of the Argentine revolutionary with Cuban Aleida March. The others are Aleida, Celia and Ernesto. Guevara had another daughter, Hilda, now deceased, from his previous marriage to Peruvian Hilda Gadea.
With deep pain, we decided in addition to Camilo, son of the Che and promoter of his ideas, as director of the Che Center, which preserves part of the extraordinary legacy of his priest.
