HAVANA, CUBA - AUGUST 20: A Cuban shop assistant holds a large portrait photo of the revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, Havana, Cuba, on 20 August 2008 in Havana, Cuba. During the Cuban Revolution, an armed rebellion at the end of the 1950s in Cuba, most of the revolutionary leaders started as no-name soldiers fighting in the jungle. Although the revolutionary leaders, after taking over the power, became autocratic rulers holding almost absolute power and putting the opposition in jail, for some reason Cuban people have never stopped to worship Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Raul Castro and others. Cubans hang their photos and portraits on the wall in homes, shops and working places even they don't have to. The people of Cuba love their heroes. (Photo by Jan Sochor/Latincontent/Getty Images)
