News reports:

“Legnica. The bust of Marshal Konstantin Rokossovski disappeared from the lapidarium in late July. The police found it in the field – headless. The perpetrators were detained”;

“Lenin lost his head near Orenburg”;

“Why was Christopher Columbus decapitated?”.

In order to say goodbye to the past that we view with distaste, we part with its visual component first. Why does the farewell begin with a symbolic execution, beheading of an already “dead” body? Perhaps this act separates us completely from the inconvenient memories and history which is difficult to accept? And the remaining torso represents an empty space, ready to be recast by forming a new hero? Is it erasing or updating history?We are currently living again in the period of great changes, deformations which have a powerful effect on the way we perceive both the past and the future. Everything that is happening incessantly influences their final shape.
