Repaired Hitler waxwork back on show in Berlin

- BERLIN

Adolf Hitler returned to the Madame Tussauds waxworks museum Saturday, two months after being “decapitate­d” by an angry visitor.

The waxwork statue of the Fuhrer, shown behind his work desk in his Berlin bunker, has been put behind a glass screen as a safety measure, the museum’s management said in a statement.

The decision was taken “to guarantee the safety of our exhibition for both visitors and staff,” the state- ment said.

Hitler’s statue had been attacked on the opening day of the Berlin Madame Tussauds July 5.

A 41-year-old Berliner tore off the statue’s head screaming “No more war!,” before being briefly taken in for questionin­g by police.
