Southeast Wisconsin Man Decides Not To Open Hitler Memorial

A man who claims he was an SS soldier during World War Two says he won't open his Hitler memorial in Walworth County after all.

Ted Junker attracted national media attention when reports surfaced he had built a shrine to Germany's infamous leader on his farm near Millard. Junker had planned to open the shrine on Sunday, June 25th.

But Walworth County officials say today they've talked him out of it, warning him the shrine might violate zoning ordinances and would attract groups of people that could cause trouble, such as white supremacists.

Graves says his deputies will patrol the area on the 25th, and will arrest anyone caught trespassing on Junker's property
