That does hardly make sense, but let me try:

History manipulation is subversion is not trivially possible. In fact, it is designed not to allow such modification.

You may dump and selectively load the history into a new repository. (dumpfilter)
Alternatively you may do the same, but create "corrected" revisions in place of the ones you want to remove. Note that subsequent loads may no longer apply from the svndump format, and that working copies may be invalidated should history change unexpectedly.
