Man rips head from Hitler wax figure
BERLIN (Reuters) - A man tore the head from a controversial waxwork figure of Adolf Hitler on the opening day of Berlin's Madame Tussauds museum Saturday, police said.
Just minutes after the museum opened, the 41-year-old German man pushed aside two security men guarding the figure before ripping off the head in protest at the exhibit, a police spokesman said. The police were alerted and arrested the man.
The waxwork figure of a glum-looking Adolf Hitler in a mock bunker during the last days of his life was criticized as being in bad taste. A media preview of the new branch of Madame Tussauds Thursday was overshadowed by a row over the exhibit.

Dear lord, no! A wax figure of a man that actually existed in human history? How dangerous! Especially to portray him in such a typical, every day environment...like a military bunker when shit is continuously hitting his proverbial fan! Must destroy!!!
He wasn't on the cover of TIME magazine (twice) for nothin'!
Downfall was a great movie despite Hitler causing some of the greatest atrocities of the modern-age. I feel bad for the guy that molded the sculpture in this drama.
Well...one a similar note, somewhere in a mall this past week, someone purchased a life-sized cardboard cut-out of Dubya, because it made them feel a lil more patriotic on the 4th of July.
