Ernesto Rafael Guevara de la Serna, genannt Che Guevara [ t͡ʃe ɣeˈβaɾa] oder einfach Che , war ein marxistischer Revolutionär, Guerillaführer, Arzt und Autor.

Er war von 1956 bis 1959 ein zentraler Anführer der Rebellenarmee der Kubanischen Revolution und ist neben Fidel Castro deren wichtigste Symbolfigur.

Guevara stammte aus einer argentinischen bürgerlichen Familie. Bereits seine während des Medizinstudiums erstellten Reisetagebücher hatten literarische Qualität und wurden mehrmals verfilmt. Einzelne seiner Schriften und Reden beeinflussten revolutionäre Strömungen weit über Kuba hinaus. Sein Leben wie sein Sterben und der posthume Personenkult um ihn waren und sind Gegenstand vielfältiger Betrachtungen in Filmen, Büchern und anderen Medien.

Die US-Zeitschrift Time zählte ihn 1999 zu den 100 einflussreichsten Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Eine Fotografie des „Che“ von Alberto Korda, Guerrillero Heroico, gilt als berühmtestes fotografisches Abbild einer Person, sie zählt zu den Medienikonen.

„Grow up as good revolutionaries.“

— Ernesto Che Guevara
Context: Grow up as good revolutionaries. Study hard to be able to dominate the techniques that permit the domination of nature. Remember that the Revolution is what is important and that each of us, on our own, is worthless.

„We must strive every day so that this love of living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples, as a moving force.“

— Ernesto Che Guevara
Context: At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality. Perhaps it is one of the great dramas of the leader that he or she must combine a passionate spirit with a cold intelligence and make painful decisions without flinching. Our vanguard revolutionaries must idealize this love of the people, of the most sacred causes, and make it one and indivisible. They cannot descend, with small doses of daily affection, to the level where ordinary people put their love into practice. The leaders of the revolution have children just beginning to talk, who are not learning to call their fathers by name; wives, from whom they have to be separated as part of the general sacrifice of their lives to bring the revolution to its fulfilment; the circle of their friends is limited strictly to the number of fellow revolutionists. There is no life outside of the revolution. In these circumstances one must have a great deal of humanity and a strong sense of justice and truth in order not to fall into extreme dogmatism and cold scholasticism, into isolation from the masses. We must strive every day so that this love of living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples, as a moving force. Excerpts from the two paragraphs above have sometimes been quoted in abbreviated form: At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality... We must strive every day so that this love of living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples, as a moving force.

„Society as a whole must be converted into a gigantic school.“

— Ernesto Che Guevara
Context: In moments of great peril it is easy to muster a powerful response to moral stimuli; but for them to retain their effect requires the development of a consciousness in which there is a new priority of values. Society as a whole must be converted into a gigantic school.

„Now you have the privilege of living in another era and you must be worthy of it.“

— Ernesto Che Guevara
Context: You should fight to be among the best in school. The very best in every sense and you already know what that means; study and revolutionary attitude. In other words: good conduct, seriousness, love for the revolution, comradeship. I was not that way at your age but I lived in a different society, where man was an enemy of man. Now you have the privilege of living in another era and you must be worthy of it.

„Each spilt drop of blood, in any country under whose flag one has not been born, is an experience passed on to those who survive,“

— Ernesto Che Guevara
Context: Each spilt drop of blood, in any country under whose flag one has not been born, is an experience passed on to those who survive, to be added later to the liberation struggle of his own country. And each nation liberated is a phase won in the battle for the liberation of one's own country.
