A 25-year-old man has been arrested in Austria after dressing up as Hitler in public.

He was detained in Hitler’s birthplace, Braunau am Inn, after being spotted outside the house where Hitler was born, and then looking through magazines about World War Two in a local bookshop. In a local bar he identified himself as “Harald Hitler”. Police say the man is known to them. Austria forbids by law any glorification of the Nazi era or its symbols.
