German Publisher's Politically Correct Editing Of Classic Book Sparks Protest
The publisher's "new edition of Otfried Preussler's beloved 1957 tale "The Little Witch" ("Die kleine Hexe") has been amended to remove certain questionable terms, including the word "negro." The decision has sparked heated discussion over how to handle outdated, controversial language in classic children's books." Der Spiegel 01/16/13
