Bury the man

In the news today- What To Do With Lenin, from Voice of America. Shall he forever remain unburied?-the question seems so symbolic for Russia- shall they go forward or be held captive by their past (or is this simply 'patriotism'). Another article by the International Herald Tribune speaks about this and other posthumous moves (Denikin, Ivan Ilyin, and Maria Feodorovna - Czar Nicholas's mother).

Catherine Merridale's book Night of Stone: Death and Memory in Twentieth-Century Russia appears to have much to say on Russian bereavement and perceptions of death.
