Berlin (ANTARA News) - A new branch of Madame Tussauds opens in Berlin on Saturday, including in its display of famous figures in Germany history the most notorious one of all, Adolf Hitler.

But in order not to give the impression that Hitler was in any way a figure to be revered, the Nazi leader appears as a broken man in a mock-up of his bunker just before the end of World War II.

The Fuehrer is depicted as a defeated, shabbily dressed shadow of his former self -- in the London Madame Tussauds the waxwork is more youthful -- as the Red Army entered Berlin shortly before his suicide on April 30, 1945.

"We did surveys while we were planning the exhibition on the street with Berliners and with tourists, and the result was quite clear that Hitler is one of the figures that they want to see," said spokeswoman Natalie Ruoss.

"Seeing as we are portraying the history of Germany we could hardly have left him out. We want to show the reality," she said.

The Nazi leader is behind a table, preventing visitors to the museum in central Berlin from posing for photos with him or damaging the waxwork.
