Hitler Decapitated!

Yup, you saw right. Hitler got his head ripped off!

Well, the wax version, anyway. Gotcha there, didn't I? *grins*

It was on MSN News and also in The Star newspaper today, and I thought it was a really interesting piece of news. The report goes that a wax figure of Adolf Hitler had its head ripped off soon after the opening of a new branch of Madame Tussauds [Wax Museum] in Berlin on Saturday by a 41-year-old Berliner who is an unemployed former police officer. The reason for his actions was because he "...wanted to protest against Hitler's figure being on show".

The vandalism was not universally condemned. Local Social Democrat councillor Frank Zimmerman said: "It's more artistic to decapitate Hitler than it was to display him."
Many will agree with that oh-so-true statement. Hitler still isn't too popular now, except where Nazi costumes are concerned, and even then, people still condemn Nazi uniforms as being "evil".

Personally, I have no objections whatsoever to having Hitler displayed in a wax museum - unless the wax figurines can come to life complete with their notorious personalities intact. Feel free to run screaming at that time. =)
