A New Jersey Neo-Nazi wants child welfare workers to return the baby girl that was taken away from him Just two days after she was born back in November.

The girl, named Eva Braun after Adolf Hitler’s mistress, was born to Heath Campbell’s girlfriend, Bethanie Zito, at a Pennsylvania hospital on Nov. 11.


Eva was Campbell’s ninth child. His nine children were born among five mothers, and Campbell doesn’t have custody of any of them.

“I’m not allowed to have children because I’m a Nazi,” Campbell, 40, said. “That’s what they’re saying. Well, I’ll stop making them when they stop taking them.”

Zito, 22, had her daughter taken away by workers from Franklin County Children and Youth Services after only two days. “I’m sorry. Your daughter is not coming back,” one of them allegedly said to Zito. “We’re taking her.”

The baby was reportedly taken because Zito’s firstborn is also in state custody.

“I started screaming. I got hysterical,” Zito told the New York Daily News. “I had just been checked out. I was breast-feeding my daughter for two days straight. I changed her. I had clothes on her.”


Even though Zito’s court-appointed lawyer said Campbell’s views didn’t come up during a court hearing about the matter in December, he doesn’t seem to be buying it.

“They kidnapped her,” Campbell said. “Because I’m not going to mix with the opposite races and I’m not going to let my children mix, that gives them the right to steal my child?”

Though family court records are generally sealed, a decision from an appeal indicates the children were actually removed from Campbell's home based on allegations of domestic violence.

Four of his other children are named Adolf Hitler, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, Honzlynn Jeannie and Heinrich Hons.

Campbell made headlines in 2008 when a bakery refused to write "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler" on his son's birthday cake, and again later after four children were taken from his home and he appeared in court wearing a full Nazi uniform.
