These historic documents, work by US filmmaker David Stone, were delivered Thursday to the History Institute in Cuba, Granma newspaper reported Friday.

Yale's gift to the Cuban regime
The castroit regurgitator Prensa Latina reports that Yale Universtiy has donated tons of unpublished photos and film documentaries to the Cuban regime. It has been deemed to be of "incalculable value" by Cuban regime officials. The gift must be filled with communist progaganda, or incriminating evidence. Since it is coming from an American institution of higher learning, I believe the former.
