German town revokes Hitler's honorary citizenship

The German town where US President George W. Bush and other G-8 leaders will gather this summer has formally revoked Adolf Hitler's honorary citizenship, putting an end to questions over whether the decades-old honor was still valid. The Bad Doberan town council voted unanimously on Monday night to revoke the citizenship conferred on Hitler in 1932, the year before he was elected to lead Germany, Mayor Hartmut Polzin said.
