Voltaire Network

Iris Davila has left us

She did not vote in the elections last Sunday. She was registered in the same municipality: Plaza de la Revolución. She passed away silently on Friday; we didn’t expect she would so soon.

She lived in the same house she got thanks to her intellectual work before the Revolution. I visited that house many times; she occupied a little space in it, and was always writing. She never protested or complained about anything.

It was her last will that her remains be cremated and scattered at the Botanical Garden, among flowers selected by her, thus avoiding the cold and silent marble.
