Like the History Channel, the British are obsessed with Adolf Hitler and the Second World War. So bad is this obsession that even houses in remotest Wales can remind some people of the former German Führer, as the Daily Mail reports:

The Hitler house: Semi in Swansea looks eerily like Nazi dictator (complete with naff side parting)

This unassuming house in a sleepy part of Swansea is set to become a global internet sensation… for bearing a passing resemblance to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Its neat brown door brings to mind the fascist dictator’s trademark toothbrush moustache.

And the slanting tiled roof falls at a similar angle to the leader’s greased down, parted hairstyle.

Eagle-eyed tweeter Charli Dickenson spotted the curious similarity and posted the photos on her Twitter page where they have become a big hit.
Comedian Jimmy Carr re-Tweeted the image later as interest gathered on the micro-blog site.

Carr wrote: ‘Morning, here’s a house that looks like Hitler.’

It was sent on by hundreds of his followers and became a trending topic on Twitter.

Adolf Hitler’s actual family home, an unassuming house in the Austrian town of Braunau, was put on the market in 2009 priced at around £2million.

By comparison the two-bedroomed Swansea look-a-like would likely go on the market at around the £70,000 mark.
