If only he HAD been made of wax

Standard

I don’t see the fuss.  Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it and all that and it’s not as if he’s not in wax in other museums all over the world, so why not in Berlin?

What am I talking about?  Hitler is returning to Germany as a wax work model in the new Berlin Madame Tussauds.

There are concerns that his mere presence as a wax work dummy will encourage neo-nazi tendencies and that people will vie to have their picture taken with him.  Really?  Are Berliners that thick that they can be swayed by a wax dummy?  And is really such a problems that people will have their photo taken with said dummy?  I’m sure the Madam Tussauds Museum are banking on it.

We need to remember, remember the truth in all it’s aspects and that’s including the bad bits.  Not to glory in what could have been, but to reflect on how one man swayed a desperate and demoralised people into committing geocide so that when another Hitler rises again we will recognise them.

Besides, one more Hitler to the growing collection around the world is not going to hurt.  He is now in more countries that he could have ever have hoped to have visited.  Here’s a few I found online:

San Francisco

Estonia

London

Hong Kong
