Madame Tussauds' museum in Berlin features HitlerBreaking News
The likeness of the Nazi leader, hunched over a desk in a dimly lit bunker just before he committed suicide at the end of World War II, was one of dozens unveiled Thursday at the opening of the British wax museum's latest branch.
The waxworks here are showcased in chronological and thematic order, highlighting Europe's postwar history.

Apparently in Germany emotions still run high when it comes to the Nazi era. Now that the wax figure was defaced by a visitor recently, the museum might rethink its decision. Apparently not, however, since the figure is being repaired and will return to his bunker setting soon.
I too question the German's hysteria concerning their history. It reminds me of the Japanese whitewashing their sordid past when teaching young Japanese children.

The depiction is hardly of the heroic stature of Hitler's worshipers would want so what is the big deal? Is any depiction of Hitler so dangerous that they must be so ultra sensitive? Would the same be for Stalin, who remained alive and free and dominated half of Europe and killed many more people?
