A MUSEUM featuring Hitler that allows visitors to dress up in Nazi uniforms and pose with swastika flags could open in Ukraine.
The city of Vinnitsa is hoping to turn the Wehrwolf bunker - where Hitler stayed during WWII - into a tourist attraction, the BBC reports.
The museum had been due to open in May to coincide with the commemoration of victory over the Nazis.
Kateryna Vysotska, who works at the Vinnitsa Museum, said the bunker would also serve as a memorial for victims.
However, communist and socialist party activists fear it could become a magnet for neo-Nazis.
............ya think ???..............
Lydia Zakusylova, who chairs the regional Communist Party, told the BBC a road sign pointing to the location of the Wehrwolf already has neo-Nazis flocking to the site.
Ms Zakusylova said initially there were suggestions to restore wartime dug-outs for PoWs, but then she was told about plans to exhibit uniforms and flags of the officers and men of the Reich.
"They wanted to offer tourists the chance to try on uniforms, hang sub machine-guns around their necks and pose for pictures with Nazi flags in the background. This is blatant Nazi propaganda," she told the BBC.
Local villagers, including children, were enlisted to dig trenches and clear out the woods.
Ms Vysotska said she met with veterans and told them that the bunker has become a tourist attraction irrespective of their wishes.
"Visitors will keep coming and it would be better if our museum staff conduct proper guided tours," she said.
In April, 2010, a museum celebrating Nazi Germany's SS opened at its former leader's headquarters in Wewelsburg Castle in Paderborn, Germany.
The $10.7 million tourist attraction also sparked fears it will lead to far right neo-fascist pilgrimages.
