Google has apologized after its mapping service renamed a road in Berlin after Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
The intersection, usually called Theodor-Heuss-Platz, temporarily regained its Nazi-era nameAdolf-Hitler-Platz.
The area carried Hitlers name after he came to power in 1933 until the end of the Second World War.

Just more wishful thinking by the libs.
There’s a lot of these kind of commie libs antics going on these days and it isn’t “accidental”.

I wonder if leftist city planners have named streets after Margaret Sanger.

(hey Kalid.. kalid.. bang you're dead)
Why does anyone apologize for an automatic action performed by a mindless set of programs acting on streams of data?
Why didn’t they just call it a glitch and avoid trouble altogether?

Of course Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin is still there.
