According to The Independent, the man who beheaded the effigy, has been arrested. Before it was disfigured, the waxwork showed Hitler with a despondent stare, his arm outstretched on a large wooden table. It was criticized because it was placed beside waxen likenesses of celebrities and sporting heroes, as well as German political bigwigs such as Willy Brandt.
Madame Tussauds has gone to some lengths to address the protests. Visitors could not touch or photograph Hitler's effigy, and security guards and video cameras were deployed.
