Jail Hitler not Heil (fake) Hitler

A HITLER lookalike has been arrested and charged with glorifying the Nazi era. Harald Zenz, 25, introduced himself to people in bars as Harald Hitler. The Austrian native was also spotted in a local bookstore browsing through Second World War magazines. Zenz (left) was arrested after having his photo taken outside Hitler's first home. It is illegal to glorify Hitler or the Nazi regime in Austria and Germany. "It is definitely not a carnival joke or an art project,” police told the BBC. "The young man knows exactly what he is doing.”
