During the Cuban Revolution, an armed rebellion at the end of the 1950s, most of the revolutionary leaders started as unnamed soldiers fighting from the jungle. After taking over the power, they became autocratic rulers holding almost absolute power and pursuing the opposition. For some reason Cuban people never stopped to worship Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Raul Castro and others. Cubans hang their photos and portraits on the wall at home, shops and working places even when they don't have to. (Photo by Jan Sochor/Latincontent/Getty Images)
