Parents did Nazi that coming: Dutch coloring book featured Hitler

A Dutch drugstore stopped sales on a coloring book for children after it was found out that one of the pictures was none other than Adolf Hitler, the former Nazi dictator who led Germany into the second World War and is responsible for the holocaust.

Customers pointed the drugstore to the inclusion of the mass murderer in the coloring book. It was released last monday and serveral dozen coloring books had been sold. The questionable picture featured Hitler doing a Nazi salute while wearing his Nazi uniform.

The publisher, a Belgian company, said in a response that the inclusion is an unfortunate mistake. The colouring book was made in India based on a book containing photos of famous people. According to the company, it’s possible the artist did not know who Hitler was. The publisher indicated the company doesn’t check each coloring page before publication.
