Off With His Head!
Madame Tussauds had their grand opening for their Berlin location over the first weekend of this month. Some genius thought it would be a good idea to put a wax Hitler there. The beloved Führer was headless before day's end.
One thing I've noticed while staying here is that Germans are über-sensitive about Hitler and all related topics. In the grand scheme of things, not that much time has passed since the second world war. There still seems to be a lot of cultural guilt felt.
A lot of people seem to feel the need to show that German ≠ Nazi. I just wish I was one of the people who saw this incident actually happen!
