Little Adolf Hitler has a new sister, and her name is Eva Braun. But these two don’t live in Nazi Germany; their father, Heath Campbell, is a New Jersey man.

Campbell, 40, has nine children by five women and is an out-of-work neo-Nazi who is obsessed with Hitler, reports the Daily News. His children include Adolf Hitler Campbell, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation and Honz­lynn Jeannie. His last child, Eva Braun Campbell, was born in November.

Eva Braun, named after Hitler’s lover, was taken away from Campbell and his girlfriend Bethanie Zito just two days after her birth. Zito, 22, was visiting relatives and had her baby at Chambersburg Hospital in Pennsylvania. As she was getting ready to leave the hospital, social workers from Franklin County, Pa., Children and Youth Service came to take away her child. Campbell has been unable to see his daughter: He was at home in Milford, N.J., when Eva Braun was born and did not have the money to travel to Chambersburg.

Campbell and Zito claim their child was taken away for their neo-Nazi views, but their lifestyle did not come up during a custody hearing. Instead, child welfare workers took the baby because Zito’s first child is also in state custody. Campbell and Zito are due in court on Monday for another hearing.

Campbell and his children first made headlines in 2009 when a ShopRite in New Jersey refused to write, “Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler” on the boy’s birthday cake for his third birthday. Oddly enough, Campbell told reporters at the time, “They need to accept a name. A name’s a name. The kid isn’t going to grow up and do what [Hitler] did,” seemingly discounting his son’s namesake.

Campbell does not have custody of any of his children.
