In protest, a man has decapitated Hitler with his bare hands. Granted, this was only a wax dummy of Hitler, but it's still an impressive feat.
I'm puzzled by the sentiment that the wax museum shouldn't depict Hitler:
Critics said it was inappropriate to display the Nazi dictator, who started World War Two and ordered the extermination of Europe's Jews, in a museum alongside celebrities, pop stars, world statesmen and sporting heroes.
Well, the place already depicts a wide variety of world leaders from history, some of them pretty vile. I'm pretty sure no reasonable person thinks they are minimizing or endorsing apathied by having a waxworks of de Klerk. Nor are they celebrating pillage and rape by having Genghis Khan in wax. This strikes me as further confusion between depiction and celebration. Unless they are making light of Hitler by posing him with, say, the Beach Boys, he strikes me as well suited for a chamber-of-horrors type exhibit.
Don't worry, I'm not going on a all-news-from-Drudge kick.
