Your browser may not support display of this image. Carmen Nordelo was born on February 15, 1933 in the Canary Islands and emigrated to Havana at the age of 17 years for economic reasons on the part of her family.

As a housewife, she supported the revolutionary activities of her husband and took care of the intellectual and social development of her three children.

She had an outstanding participation in the Battle of Ideas that our people are waging for truth and justice for our five compatriots unjustly imprisoned in the empire’s jails until, due to poor health, she was unable to continue.

Our deepest condolences to Gerardo and her other relatives on behalf of the Cuban people.
