An extremely nervous Germany is preparing to stage the first exhibition dedicated to Hitler since the Fuhrer killed himself in his Berlin bunker in 1945.The exhibition, Hitler and the Germans, opens Friday and breaks a long-standing taboo.Since WWII, there have been dozens of museum displays on Nazi crimes, on the Holocaust, on slave labor, on the murdering doctors, cruel judges and massacring soldiers – and all triggered debates and protests.But Hitler has always been out of bounds, in Berlin most of all, lest neo-Nazis start to swarm to the museum and pay tribute to the dictator of the Third Reich.The emotional power of Hitler was shown two years ago when a wax model was put on display in the Berlin branch of Madame Tussauds. An enraged visitor pushed past security guards and ripped Hitler’s head off.
….. It seems, though, that times have changed.
