Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was a Cuban revolutionary and politician. He was, among other things, Prime Minister, President and President of the Communist Party of Cuba. Castro was the driving force behind the Cuban revolution, which led to the fall of the dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959. He subsequently converted a one-party system in Cuba and became the sole dictator of the country. Various human rights violations were committed under his leadership.

Fidel Castro died late in the night of November 25, 2016, according to official data at the age of 90 in Havana. His brother Raúl then read a short statement on TV, mentioning that the dead man was cremated the next day at his own request. Castro's ashes were taken over several days to Santiago de Cuba. Castro's last voyage took the reverse of the "caravan of freedom", which the revolutionaries invaded Havana in 1959 after the fall of the US-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista. The funeral took place in the cemetery after a nine-day state service on 4 December Santa Ifigenia in Santiago de Cuba.
