Beatriz’s exile in Cuba, her role in left-wing resistance to Chile’s dictatorship, and the emergence of a global solidarity campaign are the focus of chapter nine. It deals with her role in constructing a Cuban-led narrative of the coup and her father’s death in the immediate aftermath of 11 September 1973, as well as how Chile’s left-wing parties responded to the coup, what strategies they employed to combat it, and with what success. Examining Beatriz’s perspective as an exile in Havana, it also deals with Chilean experiences in Cuba, the support the Cuban state offered exiles as well as the problems that emerged between the island’s leaders and those that now looked to it for support. And it shows Beatriz to be stuck as an intermediary between different groups, much as she had been between different left-wing sectors back in Chile but in a far more disadvantageous position.
