Esther Brinch Cuban Revolution documents
Published by George Mason University Libraries
Esther Brinch served as a translator for the Danish government during the 1960s in Cuba. She was a member of multiple organizations, including the World Peace Council and the Women's International Democratic Federation. Brinch's work covered the Cuban Revolution, a violent upending of authoritarian President Fulgencio Batista who was replaced by socialist (and later Communist-backed) Fidel Castro. Her work also covered the Cuban Missile Crisis, a two-week period between October 16 and October 28, 1962 in which tensions escalated between the United States and the Soviet Union over Soviet nuclear missiles stored in Cuba, about 90 miles from the coast of the United States.
