One person's hero may be another's villain. Thise Soviet soldiers that were defending Leningrad and fought in Stalingrad werw also oppressing their ownpeople in the worst way. While you and I might consider Leutenant Kubilay a hero many in Turkey still weep after the black robed mullah who carried Kubilay's head in the streets of Menemen. While most Turks consider Kemal Ataturk as the greatest hero if a Turkish Kurd or Armenians in the USA would speak out freely their opinion would be the opposite. Personally I do not have any heros. I do repect the great achievements that people did. I respect Jonas Salk for developing the polio vaccine, Kemal Ataturk for crating a modern state etc. but I have no doubt taht all heros have their weeknesses and some dark side just like any human being.
