Statues topple as Europe purges communist monuments

A sculpture with the inscription 'Marx, Engels, Lenin' on the facade of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland, Sunday, Aug. 28, 2022. The Palace of Culture, a Stalin-era skyscraper in the center of Warsaw remains a prominent reminder of the communist era and Soviet domination. The building was a gift from dictator Josef Stalin and was long seen as a symbol of communism. When communism fell more than 30 years ago, some called for it to be torn down. But it is a part of a city's life and has since received protection status as a place of historical significance. (AP Photo/Michal Dyjuk)
