Four-year old Adolf Hitler Campbell. His sister 3-year old Joyce Lynn Aryan Nation Campbell and 2 year old Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell .
A New Jersey couple lost custody to all three of the children after a court decided there was a history of domestic violence in the home.
Since 2008, the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services has been investigating reports of abuse in the Campbell household.
Mother Deborah Campbell was interviewed in 2009
SOUNDBITE: Deborah Campbell, saying (English):
"They felt the children were in danger for their lives. (REPORTER ASKS: Physically in danger?) They didn't say anything. All they said was the children were in danger there,"
In 2009, the family made headlines after a ShopRite supermarket in Phillipsburg, New Jersey refused to inscribe young Adolf Hitler's name on a birthday cake.
Shoppers expressed sympathy for the children.
SOUNDBITE: Shopper Rachel Leahyl, saying (English):
"I guess if you are going so far as to name your child something that represents hate and destruction, I can't imagine that the family life would be too much more loving,"
SOUNDBITE: Unidentified Shopper, saying (English):
"People do have the right to name their children whatever they are, but I think it's not very good, I can't think of the word, good idea to name your child Adolf Hitler or Hussan Hussein or some al-Qaeda name, but I feel sorry for the children because they have no say in it."
State officials insist the children were not removed from the home because of their Nazi names.
