The objective of this project, which aims at the research stage in the city of Havana, is to obtain crucial information on the main research project that, for reasons of different natures, are sometimes hidden or fragmented in our source. In addition, through the research stage in Cuba, we seek to obtain results that expand the possibilities of research in Brazil, allowing for more solid and consistent results. In this way, places such as the Photo Library National of Cuba, the National Library José Martí, the Revolution Museum and the State Council Historical Affairs Workshop are extremely important for the establishment of contact with additional materials or even materials difficult to identify in our digital source in Brazil. Finally, the collection of native testimonies that lived the context studied in our research can result in valuable information for the conclusion of what is proposed, allowing us to reach answers that only memories has.
