The charismatic revolutionary leader - and to the eyes of many revolutionary hero - Ernesto “Che” Guevara was a medical doctor by profession, yet it was in his role as a marxist guerilla leader that he inserted himself in world history. After Fidel Castro's (1926–2016) takeover of power in Cuba on January 1, 1959 he served in numerous functions, including minister of industry, diplomat and governor of the Cuban national bank. On October 9, 1967 Ernesto “Che” Guevara was executed in Bolivia by the Bolivian officer Mario Terán (b. 1941), who is now a pensioner residing in La Paz.
