Still a Hero 20 Years later...

Picture of "Tank Man", an unidentified protester in China's Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989 standing in front of a row of tanks.  He became an icon of the resistance, but no one knows who he was.  (There seems to be some disagreement about the date of the photo - several news sites stated today was the 20th Anniversary, but Wikipedia states that the photo was taken on June 5.  Perhaps it was June 5 in China when the news sources were announcing it?)
