Professional Hitler Look-a-Like Charges $100 For Photos, Loves His Job

A man by the name of Emin Djinovci from Mitrovica has been earning a living as a Hitler look-a-like, of all things, and even charges tourists £60 for taking a photograph with him.

Djinovaci, 49, has five daughters who he collectively calls 'Hitler's children' and says that he is proud of his likeness to the Nazi leader because he fought against the Serbs – his enemies.

“I am proud of my likeness to the Fuhrer because, like him, I fought against the Serbs - my enemies,” he told InSerbia News. “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 fight of Kosovo Albanians for secession from Serbia. He now can be seen carrying around copies of Hitler's hate-filled autobiography Mein Kampf - My Struggle – wherever he goes and refers to himself as “Kosovo reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.”

According to Kosovan media, local business leaders have no problem with his strange way of earning a living because they believe he “shows great enterprise.” If he tried dressing up as Hitler in Germany, however, he would be arrested on the spot because any display of the old Nazi regime or it’s symbols is considered a serious hate crime in their country.
