Amazon is selling a series of books for children that glorifies mass murderers Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Although some of the subjects of these books are innocuous such as Albert Einstein, Ben Franklin, and Amelia Earhart, glorifying Fidel and Che is very controversial.
The books don’t tell how many they killed or some of the horrors they inflicted on their death row inmates. They would take 7 pints of blood out of them before the execution.
“Who Was Che Guevara?” focuses on the Marxist revolutionary who was a major figure in the Cuban Revolution and a murderer who “killed people without regard to guilt or innocence,” placed gay people in labor camps, and opposed a free press.
“Viva la revolución!” the Amazon description begins. “Find out how Che Guevara — a doctor turned communist leader and much more than a face on a T-shirt — ended up paying the ultimate price for his cause.”
“His legacy — as the author of The Motorcycle Diaries, a champion of the poor, and a force for change in Cuba — is both personal and political,” the description adds. Amazon includes the first chapter of the book, titled “A Brave Boy.”
“Who Was Fidel Castro?” is another book available in the series.

“When Fidel Castro died on November 25, 2016, many people around the world responded with mixed emotions. Learn all about the man who shaped Cuba for more than half a decade,” the description states. “After overthrowing Fulgencia Batista in 1959, Fidel Castro became the leader of an island country only ninety miles away from Florida. While in power, Castro outlasted ten US presidents and turned the small nation into a one-party state with influence over the entire world. Called a leader by some and a dictator by others, Castro defined not one but several eras in world politics.”
One particularly brutal review described the book as a “Horrible depiction of a dictator.”:
“I would rate this zero stars if I could. I got this book for my 12-year-old nephew with several others books in this series. I held this one back. Fidel was an evil person responsible for destroying its people and country. This book paints him to be an angel. My family lived and suffered under Fidel’s brutal dictatorship. Find a truthful book!”
