You wonder if the summer heat has gone to people’s head or if this man was pining over the Hitler wax figure until the completion of the museum.
…it’s nice to be back to the land of broadband…Gestalt and I were chatting the other day and he thought I should mention the beheading of Hilter. I agreed! So mote it be…
On Saturday 7/5/08, the first day the Berlin Madame Tussauds wax museum opened, a Berlin man pushed aside two museum employees to attack the wax Hitler figure. He managed to rip off its head while shouting, “No more war!” He was only the second person to enter the museum after its doors had opened.
Madame Tussauds made a statement that they would repair the wax figure of Adolf Hitler that the man decapitated at its new Berlin branch and return it to the museum, “As quickly as possible.”
The man was detained for his conduct. He told police officers he wanted to protest the figure being included into the wax museum. The was figure had been under scrutiny since the German media learned of its placement in the museum.
Pictured above is what the Hilter wax figured looked like before its execution on Saturday. There had been some controversy surrounding the wax figure going into the Germany museum. However, the museum’s advocates quarreled Hitler’s role in German history must not be ignored. As agonizing and atrocious as that part of history might be, it is still part of the past.
