Hitler Pop Controversy

German born American artist Walter Gaudnek has managed to upset people by holding an exhibition of Adolf Hitler, showing him in a more casual and positive way. The artist tried to portray Hitler as human rather than as a monster and members of the Jewish community didn’t find it very amusing. Gaudnek is now taking his exhibition down after just two weeks because of the controversy the works have created. Gaudnek told Reuters.. “I wanted to educate my students on the historical phenomenon of Hitler and show an aspect of him which has got lost over time”.
