As soon as the new Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Berlin Germany opened this past week, a disturbed visitor entered the museum and quickly ripped the head off of the Hitler wax figure. The figure had caused quite a controversy even before the museum opened to the public because some people would rather not have the man represented at all. Madame Tussaud's felt that ignoring the Hitler era in Germany would be unwise, So they created this scene that shows the last days of Hitler's life, hole up in a bunker. Guests could not get their picture taken with it, unlike the other figures in the museum. But like this gentleman, many people thought with their hearts and not their heads. The museum quickly removed the figure and sent it out for repairs.
This was the scene before the vandalism. As anyone can see, the man wasn't being glorified, he was shown as a defeated, sullen man waiting to die.
The scene after the figure was removed. This story was probably the biggest wax museum news to hit in a long while.
