Adolf Hitler lookalike carries copy of Mein Kampf and charges tourists £60 for a photo



A man from Kosovo believes he is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler and makes a living charging tourists £60 for taking a photo with him.

Emin Djinovci, 49, who has five daughters he calls 'Hitler's children,' travels everywhere with the Nazi leader's autobiography Mein Kampf and is proud of his likeness to Hitler because he fought against his enemies, the Serbs.

Speaking to InSerbia, he said: "It is easy. I find myself in Hitler's character because he fought against my enemy. Enemy of my enemy is my friend. Yes, Serbs are my enemies."

Djinovci moved to Kosovo in 1998 from Germany to join the fight of Kosovo Albanians for secession from Serbia.

According to the Daily Mail, local businesses have no problem with his way of earning a living as they believe he "shows great enterprise".

If Djinovci posed as Hitler in Germany, he would be arrested immediately as it is a serious crime.

Last year, Thailand took its bizarre obsession with Hitler too far by opening a chicken restaurant in Bangkok named after the German Nazi leader.

A picture of the restaurant on amusingthailand.com showed the restaurant appearing as though it had stolen KFC's style with a picture of Hitler replacing Colonel Sanders.

Alan Robertson, who lives in Bangkok, told the Daily Mail: "The place opened last month and nobody quite knows what to make of it.

"I went in for a bite last week and got some fried chicken, which was pretty good, and asked the guy behind the counter why it was called Hitler.

"He just shrugged his shoulders and said the owners had thought it was good image."

Zagreb's Museum of Broken Relationships grew from an idea by Croatian Olinka Vistina and Drazen Grubisic who broke up a few years ago. The museum is a unique emotional journey around the world through hundreds of love break-ups. Each of the more than 700 items on display is explained by a love story.

A total of 500 sculptures sit four metres underwater in the Cancun Underwater Museum. Deep under the seas of the Mexican Caribbean the statues look like relics of an ancient civilisation located in the National Marine Park, on the west coast of Isla Mujeres, Punta Cancun and Punta Nizuc. As the world's largest underwater sculpture museum, it was designed to celebrate the Mayan history of the region and act as an artificial reef.

If you need some inspiration for your pet pooch’s first collar, head to Kent for a visit to the Dog Collar Museum at Leeds Castle, which has had hounds for hunting, gundogs and huge mastiffs to guard the gates. Taking you through dog collar designs of the past five centuries; it’s most probably the only place where you can compare historic hunting dog-style collars right up to Paris Hilton's doggy styles of today.
An homage to the culinary emblem of Germany's capital city – the currywurst, or curried sausage – the German Currywurst Museum features an interactive exhibition that takes visitors on a tour of discovery. In the Spice Chamber, sniffing stations reveal the secrets of the perfect currywurst recipe and visitors can even run their own snack bar. Then, when work is over, a sausage sofa sits invitingly in a stream of sauce. And, of course, the Snack Lounge serves currywurst in all its forms.
Cappadocia is best-known for its magnificent cave homes and quirky fairy chimneys, but one man has turned one of the historic caves into the bizarre and creepy Avanos Hair Museum. The weird museum contains hair samples of more than 16,000 women worldwide and was created by potter Chez Galip, who we're assuming has a strange obsession with hair. Each lock is taped to the walls of the cave with the name and address of its owner on display.

If you’re cuckoo about clocks then this unique museum in Cheshire will have you entertained for hours. Set up by Mancunian clock maker brothers, Roman and Maz Piekarski, Cuckooland is a collection of timepieces for over 40 years. In their collection of treasures you’ll find clocks, not only of the cuckoo kind but also quail and trumpeter clocks, which are set up to play at intervals throughout your visit.

What constitutes good art is a matter of opinion, but founder and curator of the Museum of Bad Art was pushed over the edge when he discovered 'Lucy in the Field with Flowers', an "inconceivably awful work of impossible angles", which inspired him to put together a collection of the most offensive attempts at art. There are 400 grimace-worthy pieces – 40 of which are on show at a time.
Caught short? Head to the Sulabh International Museum of Toilets, where Dr Bindeshwar Pathak's worldwide research into the evolution of the human waste receptacle has resulted in a collection that some might call a load of old toilet. But pictures, exhibits – even poetry – relate the history of the toilet and related customs. Check out the chamber pots – veritable Victorian objets d'art – the French toilet disguised as a bookcase and the replica of King Louis XIII's throne, with its concealed commode.

Where other than the ancient land of Cornwall would you find a museum dedicated entirely to witchcraft? In the sleepy village of Boscastle, you’ll find the mysterious Witchcraft Museum filled with magical potions, incantations, spell ingredients, voodoo dolls, Ouija boards and the odd taxidermy cat!

Think parasite and most of us are flooded with images of intestinal worms or malarial mosquitoes, but the Meguro Parasitological Museum celebrates the 'wondrous and resourceful way of life' of these fascinating creatures. With 300 preserved specimens, the museum offers an overview of the world of parasites and their life cycles in an attempt to transform the visitor's preconceptions and to shed their feelings of fear.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the world's first Cornish pasty museum might be based in Cornwall... but, in fact, it's located 5,000 miles away in Mexico. The museum in Real del Monte opened in 2012, in the town twinned with Redruth, and its links with Cornwall date back to the 1820s, when Cornish miners settled there, helping to boost the silver mining industry.
There are many reasons for being thankful for not being born in medieval times, but if one needed any more, then a visit to the Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments in Prague should do the trick. More than 60 exhibits – including the nail-embedded Torture Chair – graphically illustrate the widely practised torture of heretics, witches, state enemies... perhaps even those who sneezed in the wrong manner. Not for the weak-stomached.
Lawnmowers? To us these garden machines just get in the way and take up too much space in the shed but apparently there's huge interest in the grass cutters and even the British Lawnmower Museum. At the museum in Merseyside, you can look at vintage lawnmowers, browse celebrity donations and check out some of the fastest lawnmowers in the world.
Some of us might be old enough to remember the joy of school dinners when it was the day for SPAM fritters – slices of tinned luncheon meat, battered, fried and squeaky on the teeth. But those who haven't had the pleasure should head to the SPAM Museum at the home of the Hormel Foods Corporation, which offers 16,500 square feet of interactive and educational exhibits, relating the product's history – from the role of SPAM Classic in World War Two to delicious modern-day recipes.
Iceland's Phallus Museum is bulging at the seams with the world's largest collection of penises. Those who visit this wonderfully weird museum in Reykjavik (and how can you not?) are treated to penile parts from 16 different kinds of whale, one specimen taken from a rogue polar bear and penises belonging to seven different types of seal. There's even a human penis donated by a 95-year-old after his death.

We actually wouldn't have believed this happened if we hadn't seen this picture. A Chinese mother let her infant son defecate on the floor at Taiwan Airport. It wasn't a case of 'there were no toilets' either, as the boy was pictured pooing just 25 metres from the toilet. NowNews published the photo, which was taken by a Taiwanese tour guide. The photo shows newspaper spread out underneath the child.

Here's why you should never manhandle a dolphin... In China, a group of tourists lifted a stranded dolphin out of the water to pose with it in photographs at Dadonghai, Hainan Province. The dolphin, which was already wounded, died, and the tourists were accused of contributing to its death after manhandling the animal for almost 30 minutes. The tourists' photos were posted on social networking site, causing outrage.

Manatees have been protected in Florida since 1893 but that didn't stop one tourist from riding the harmless sea animal when she went for a dip near the city of St Petersburg. Ana Gutierrez, 52, was photographed touching and climbing on top of the manatee. When police arrived they were unable to locate her but after locals gave them photos of the woman, she turned herself in and explained she was unaware that hitching a ride on a manatee was prohibited. Although the animal was unhurt, she could have spent 60 days in prison.

At the end of 2012 when the world was 'about to end', revellers headed for an ancient Mayan temple in Guatemala for 'end of world' parties. The ancient stone temple at Tikal was damaged by tourists who climbed on it during the celebrations. Tikal was visited by more than 7,000 people for a colourful ceremony but it is forbidden to climb the stairs of its UNESCO world Heritage Site and the damage caused was irreparable.

When holidaymaker Labros Hydros came across an octopus while snorkelling in the sea on his trip to Greece, he had just one thing on his mind - dinner! What the 49-year-old mechanical engineer didn't know was that it was the second six-legged specimen ever found. Labros followed tradition by smashing it against a rock to kill it and took the 'hexapus' to a local taverna for a chef to cook it but he refused and told Hydros he should have let it live. The father-of-two cooked and ate it anyway!

A teenager caused outrage in his native China when he etched his name on an ancient Egyptian monument while on holiday with his parents. The 15-year-old boy wrote 'Ding Jinhao wuz here' in Chinese on the almost 3,500-year-old Luxor Temple in Egypt and after a photo of the damage was taken by another tourist and posted on China's Twitter-like website Sina Weibo, users hunted down the boy. His parents said Ding had "cried all night" after being attacked on the social networking site and they were forced to issue an apology in a local newspaper.

Whether you've been on safari or not, you'll know that it's a pretty good idea to stay inside your 4X4 and keep well away from the animals - especially the elephants which can easily crush you. One drunken tourist decided he not only wanted to get up close to the wildlife but that it would be funny to charge at an elephant while at South Africa's Kruger National Park. Luckily for the man, the animal decided to run the other way and not charge back at him. The "disgraceful" footage was posted on YouTube and one user said it was a pity the "elephant did not give you a mauling". Wildlife advocates also called for charges to be brought against the man.

Cringe! An American tourist visiting Florence's Museo dell'Opera del Duomo accidentally snapped a finger off of a 600-year-old statue of the Virgin Mary. Patrick Broderick, 55, who ironically happens to be an surgeon, was trying to compare his finger to one on the marble statue when it broke off. He was arrested in front of his wife and kids and released after questioning. Don’t you wish people would take notice of the 'Do Not Touch' signs?

Usually if you're not too keen on a place you just make the decision never to return. But one tourist was so "disappointed" after driving from his home in Germany to a cottage in Scotland that he threw a pizza and a pot of noodles at his partner. Wolfgang Gruelich, 57, was jailed for a night after injuring his partner when the country didn't live up to his expectations and when released he had to make his own way home while his partner and their children drove back.
