Italiano: Fotografia di Che Guevara scattata dal fotografo cubano Alberto "Korda" Gutierrez (1928-2001), durante il memoriale per le vittime dell'esplosione de "La Coubre", un mezzo militare belga esploso nel porto di Havana il 5 marzo 1960, in cui morirono 136 persone. Il quel periodo, Korda era un fotografo facente parte dello staff della testata giornalistica cubana "Revolution". Utilizzò una fotocamera Leica per scattare due frame del soggetto, che apparve brevemente sul palco durante un lungo discorso di Fidel Castro. Questa immagine non è completa, ma solo un cropping della parte centrale. La fotografia originale (misure 15,2 x 25,4 cm) fu intitolata Guerrillero heroico (letteralmente "guerrigliero eroico").
