Austria pulls Aphrodite statue given by Hitler





The Austrian city of Linz has removed a statue of Aphrodite from a park after learning that it was a present from Hitler, officials said on Friday.

Authorities in Austria's third largest city said they checked the origins of the bronze statue after someone left an unsigned note on it stating that the statue of the Greek goddess of love was a gift from the Nazi leader.

Research in Linz's city archives determined that the claim was correct and the statue was immediately removed and put in storage, a city statement said.
