Well, this is worrying.

It is a criminal offence in Austria to glorify Adolf Hitler or the Nazis.

But now authorities in Austria are searching for a man who has been seen impersonating the former German leader of the Nazi party.

Sky News reports that there have been reports of a man with the distinctive moustache, haircut and clothing as the former dictator in Hitler’s birthplace, Braunau.

The man in his 20’s was also spotted in a local bookshop inquiring about World War II magazines. He is also believed to have identified himself as Harald Hitler.

An investigation is now underway by Austrian police.
