The Enrique Estrada Firefighters Museum in the province of Matanzas inaugurated its exhibition of the month Margot: discipline, dedication and love dedicated on this occasion to the missing Lieutenant Colonel Margot Hidalgo-Gato Toribio.
The research, design and assembly of the exhibition was carried out by the museum group and includes photos, certificates, medals and distinctions obtained by the woman as part of her imprint on the Ministry of the Interior in the province of Matanzas and her contribution as a literacy teacher and member of the Federation of Cuban Women and the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.
Margot joined the ranks of the Ministry of the Interior in 1963 where she held different responsibilities. Her greatest contributions were as second head of the Provincial Cadre Body and later president of the Minors Council. He was also part of the Association of Combatants of the Cuban Revolution where he carried out meritorious work in defense of history and national values.
The inauguration of the exhibition took place with the presence of the first secretary of the Party in the province of Matanzas, Susely Morfa González and the governor Mario Sabines Lorenzo. This small tribute to Margot Hidalgo-Gato Toribio and in some way to the multiple examples of the female imprint in the MININT forces was also added to the celebration of the 327th anniversary of the creation of the Cuban Fire Department and the 25th of the foundation of the Enrique Estrada Firefighters Museum, the only one of its kind in the country.
