Madame Tussauds to Reattach Wax Hitler’s Head


Following up on a story from yesterday, apparently the people at Madame Tussauds in Berlin are eager to latch on and ride the press wave as long as they possibly can before people realize that they’re spending a lot of time talking about a wax museum, they have decided to replace the head of Wax Hitler, who was decapitated this weekend not minutes after the museum’s grand opening. This, of course, means that we will have to wait upwards of ten minutes after the new one is rolled out and someone attacks it again. Here’s a bit:

“The figure will be repaired, so that it can be reintegrated into the display as quickly as possible,” the museum said in a statement Monday, adding that it was still open despite the missing Hitler.

It is not clear how long it will take to repair the figure, Madame Tussauds spokesman Thomas Reinecke told The Associated Press. He refused to give any details about security improvements at the museum but said the issue was being discussed.
