As Christmas draws near, I thought I might depart, if only for a day, from the political arena where I usually reside, and present something a little less controversial.
Did I say less controversial? Well, you be the judge.
A rare toy figure of Adolf Hitler made for German children was revealed last year by the son of a World War II soldier for the first time.
The figure of the fascist dictator was part of a collection of toys U.S Private Jerome Beaulier bought at a toy shop in Germany at the end of the war in exchange for cigarettes and chocolate bars.
He mailed them back to his five-year-old son Jerry, who received them in 1945 and has kept them ever since.
The four-inch tall Hitler figure is seated in the front passenger seat of a German army jeep alongside three soldiers.
