A CHILD named Adolf Hitler Campbell and his siblings have been taken from their family by child welfare workers.
The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services removed three-year-old Adolf and his younger sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell from their home on Tuesday, The Associated Press reports.
Agency spokeswoman Kate Bernyk said it would not provide any details on why the children were removed.
The kids' parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, received worldwide attention last month when they complained that a shop had refused to make Adolf a birthday cake.
Mr Campbell, 35, has decorated his home with swastikas and says he is related to a member of the SS.
But he said it is the store that wouldn't write "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler" on a cake that should have shown more consideration for other people's feelings.
"They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did," he told the Associated Press at the time of the cake incident.
But the ShopRite store that refused the cake request says it did the right thing.
"We believe the request ... to inscribe a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler is inappropriate," spokeswoman Karen Meleta told the Express-Times newspaper.
The store has also refused to make a cake bearing the name of JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, who turns two next month.
Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, named for SS head Heinrich Himmler, turns one in April.
He said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name".
"They're just names, you know," he told the Express-Times newspaper.
"Yeah, they (Nazis) were bad people back then. But my kids are little. They're not going to grow up like that."
"Other kids get their cake. I get a hard time," he said. "It's not fair to my children.'
Mr Campbell said he didn't expect the names to cause problems when the children start school.
