Hitler billboard out in Thailand

A giant billboard showing Hitler giving a Nazi salute located along a major highway in Thailand has been covered up. The billboard, which for two weeks had advertised a waxworks museum set to open in the coastal city of Pattaya, read in Thai “Hitler is not dead.”

It was covered Oct. 18 after about 100 complaints and a protest letter from the Israeli Embassy, as well as a complaint from the German Embassy, according to the Bangkok Post.

Somporn Naksuetrong, managing director for Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks,   apologized for the billboard. — jta
