Hitler dolls for sale in Taiwan
Hitler look-alike dolls are on sale in 7-Eleven stores in Taiwan.
The dolls, which feature the characteristic mustache, raised right arm salute, comb over and a red armband, went on sale Sunday, according to the San Diego Jewish World.
Designed by a doll firm in Japan, they are being sold by someone who calls himself Mark Lee for $15.
This is not the first time that Taiwan has used Hitler’s likeness in a commercial context. In 1999, a Taiwanese company featured Hitler on subway billboards to promote German-made electric space heaters.
