Overview

Olga Ots was born in Havana, Cuba. She completed her secondary education in Havana and then came to the States to pursue an A.A. in secretarial science at Sacred Heart Junior College in Belmont, North Carolina. After returning to Cuba, she went through very dramatic experiences during Batista’s dictatorship and the first two years of Fidel Castro Ruz’s regime.

Olga wrote this journal some time ago while living in the U.S. She was motivated by seeing the great lack of knowledge that existed in this country about how Fidel Castro Ruz came into power.

It was upon her return to visit Cuba in 2002-after forty-one years of absence-that she decided to publish this journal.

What she found upon her trip to Cuba was a country that had been frozen in 1959 and had deteriorated since. She was amazed to see how her relatives had survived this ordeal. Human rights in Cuba are now nonexistent, and native Cubans are treated as slaves in their own country.

Olga holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from CalState, Los Angeles.  She is also a retired instructor from Pasadena City College, where she taught secretarial science.

At this time, she and her husband reside in California.

    This is an island that no matter how much turmoil it has gone through, it still floats. It is a short journal that depicts, basically, how Fidel Castro Ruz took over the island. How he lied to everybody, including the United States of America.

    A true personal journal that depicts very personal experiences and that includes true historical events, from a very down-to-earth-individual.
