Hitler: the opposite of freedom

Moments after the wax museum exhibit in Berlin opened, sporting a new installation of Hitler in his bunker, a man burst through security and tore the Hitler figure's head off.

I am looking at the varied way the headline writers have dealt with this story, just over the wires now. Headline writers can only use a few words, but have to evoke the scene, be accurate and grab readers. How did they do?
