Self-proclaimed Nazi’s name change to Hitler takes effect

HUNTERDON, N.J. (AP) — A self-proclaimed Nazi officially became Isidore Heath Hitler with a name change that took effect this week.

MyCentralJersey.com reported Hitler’s name officially changed from Isidore Heath Campbell on Monday, the anniversary World War II’s end in Europe after Germany’s surrender.

“It’s great. My driver’s license is changed over, my insurance, my registration, all that I needed is changed over,” he said. “I’m the new Hitler.”

He said his initials, I.H.H., stand for “I Hail Hitler,” and that he gave a prayer for the Nazis on the day his name officially changed.

Hitler first gained national attention when a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake for his son, who’s named Adolf Hitler Campbell after the Nazi leader.

Hitler said he now wants to regain custody of his four children, who are all named after various Nazis and white nationalist groups.

During a family court hearing for his youngest son, Hitler reportedly entered a New Jersey courthouse dressed in a Nazi uniform.

Court records show Hitler was ordered to seek counseling. But he refused because he says his psychologist was Jewish.
