Three siblings whose names have Nazi connotations - and whose family made headlines after a bakery refused to put one of the children's names on a cake - have been placed in the custody of the state. Holland Township Police Sgt. John Harris said on Wednesday that workers from the state Division of Youth and Family Services removed three-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell and his younger sisters, Joyce-Lynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell from their home the previous day, The Express-Times of Easton, Pennsylvania, reported. Harris said family services did not tell police the reason the children were removed. Spokeswoman Kate Bernyk said the agency does not comment on specific cases. The children and their parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, received attention last month when a supermarket bakery refused to put Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on a birthday cake.
