Adolf Hitler Removed From Parents Home

3-Year-Old Adolf  Hitler Campbell and his two younger sisters JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell were removed from their parents home by New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS), for unknown reasons. Kate Bernyk, a spokeswoman for the DYFS, said confidentiality laws barred her from commenting on the case or even confirming that the Campbell children were involved.

Little Adolf  Hitler Campbell gained national notoriety when his father, Heath Campbell, tried to order a birthday cake with his son’s name on it. The local ShopRite refused to inscribed the name “Adolf  Hitler” on the cake, claiming that the name was offensive. Heath, who has named all three of his children after Nazi characters, eventually got the cake engraved with his son’s name by a nearby Walmart.

Why the children were removed from the Campbell house remains a mystery. Sgt. John Harris of the Holland Township Police Department says, as far as he knows, there have been no problems with the Campbell family.

“I’ve dealt with the family for years and as far as the children are concerned, I have never had any reports of any abuse with the children,” Harris said. “As far as I know, he’s always been very good with the children.”

Even though DYFS spokeswoman, Kate Bernyk , would not comment specifically on the Campbell case she indicated that there was good reason for removing the children and that the action taken was in consultation with other pertinent authorities.

Speaking generally, Bernyk said the state’s “decision to remove a child is based on the safety and well being of the child and the risk to that child, and that decision is made in conjunction with the courts and the county family court judge.”

“DYFS would never remove a child simply based on that child’s name,” Bernyk said.

Whatever the reasons for removing the children, Heath Campbell, 35, and his wife, Deborah, 25, have an appointment in court to deal with this matter. Forensic psychologist N.G. Berrill said naming a boy Hitler could be considered child abuse.

“Part of it is the infantile nature of the parents’ behavior,” Berrill said. “You can name your dog something weird, but they think they’re making some kind of bold statement with the children, not appreciating that the children will have separate lives and will be looked at in a negative light until they’re able to change their name. It is abuse.”

The Campbell house is a monument to the Nazi’s. There are swastikas prominently displayed in each room of their home. They say they aren’t racists but believe races shouldn’t mix. Heath says he named his son Adolf  Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name.

    What astounds me is that the parents seem to be completely without a clue! Denying the atrocities that Adolf Hitler was responsible for?!? I mean really…how is that possible? Heath Campbell must have either been kept under a rock through his entire childhood…never properly educated in historical facts. The main concern should be the children…those poor children didn’t have any say what they would be named…nor could they chose their parents. I think the best hope is that people will remember that the children are not responsible for their parents complete lack of good and common sense.

    Okay sad choice in baby names but is that reason to take the children away from their parents? What effect will that have on the well being of the children? Very sad, actually scary!
