A wax model of Adolf Hitler [was placed] on display at Madame Tussaud in Berlin, Saturday Sept. 13, 2008. Madame Tussaud’s says it has returned a wax figure of Adolf Hitler to its newly opened Berlin branch weeks after the statue was beheaded by a 41-year-old German. Madame Tussaud’s says the figure can be viewed sitting at a desk in a replica of the Nazi leader’s bunker. The branch says it does not allow visitors to enter the bunker in order to ensure the figure’s protection.
