My mother told a similar story of beheading, this time in Poland. She didn't
witness the act, but saw the headless body in Brest-Litovsk of a robbed man,
probably Jewish, who had come for a visit >from America. My mother came to the
US in 1928, so this was sometime earlier.

My grandfather told my father that when he was living in Austria, he stepped
out of a theater that was showing Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He said that as he
exited a theater, he witnessed a beheading,perpetrated by mounted men.
