Figurine of Hitler

Objects from this contributor

The figurine does not appear to have been made by an amateur. It has the feel of a small commercial studio. It can surely only have been made in late 1944 or 1945,and in small quantities, for no one would have dared produce or sell them in any quantity on the open market. It is thought to have been made in France by someone extremely brave.

    If the vision of this figurine would have come true ahead of the outbreak of WWII, we all would be extremely happy now!
    Unfortunately Hitler has been afraid to face the trial he had to expect, because he definitely knew he would end like this perfect figurine shows us.
    Very well done!!!
