A waxwork of Hitler to be displayed at Berlin Tussauds
Although you will not be allowed to have your picture taken with it apparently.
Who would want to is my question!
In a statement, the museum said Hitler’s rule "stands for an important, though also appalling turning point in the development of modern Europe.
"To ignore Hitler’s role in this era would allow a strange gap to develop in the German and Berlin history that we show from (19th century chancellor Otto von) Bismarck to the present day."
The statement also stressed: "Madame Tussauds is nonpolitical."
The museum, which will open on July 9 will feature many prominent Germans, including former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, current Chancellor Angela Merkel and scientist Albert Einstein.
The waxwork will be displayed behind glass so that tourists cannot have their pictures taken with it, and will be constantly monitored by video cameras.
Stephan Kramer, general secretary of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, said the figure must be accompanied by information on Hitler and the Nazi era.
However, he was quoted as telling the Netzeitung online newspaper that the exhibit could perhaps help "demystify" Hitler.
"Trying to erase Hitler from history doesn’t work and is counterproductive" he said, according to the report.
