A Dutch retailer has been pressured to apologise after it unwittingly bought a colour-by-numbers e-book that includes Adolf Hitler.
The dictator was pictured making a Nazi salute and carrying a Swastika armband.
Kruidvat, the Dutch drugstore chain stocking it, stated they “deeply regretted the incident” and instantly withdrew the product.
The e-book was produced in India and it’s stays unclear why Hitler was included.
“My suspicion is that the person who created the colouring e-book obtained a e-book of well-known folks out of the closet and chosen a pair, which sadly included Adolf Hitler. Perhaps he didn’t acknowledge him,” a spokesperson for the Belgian writer Trifora told local media.
The writer defined the e-book, Kleuren op Code, included important historic figures resembling Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein and Abraham Lincoln.
“It’s a nasty mixture of circumstances. We test the e-book on translations, however don’t test all of the colouring photos,” the spokesperson stated.
The Dutch retailer was solely alerted after the e-book had gone on sale and shocked dad and mom started posting feedback on social media.
One guardian posted a picture of the web page with the caption: “Good, your colouring e-book!”
One other buyer referred to as it a “shame” on the corporate’s Fb web page.
Kruidvat stated it was solely on sale for half a day and was instantly faraway from cabinets when the issue got here to mild.
The corporate stated it was investigating how the picture ended up within the e-book and was providing full refunds to clients who purchased copies.
