Nazi-era Mountain Name Label Removed from Google Earth

A mountain name which appeared in the "Geographic Features" layer of Google Earth caused some negative publicity a couple of weeks ago. I just got an E-mail from this blogger (in Spanish) that Google has removed the label from Google Earth. The mountain was re-named temporarily during the Nazi-era to "Adolf Hitler Berg", and somehow that label found it into a database which was showing up in Google Earth. After some residents in the area discovered the label it got publicized by a Speigel Online article (in German). Google quickly responded they would fix the label. Now, the label just shows the current name of the mountain "Heigel-Kopf". See previous story.
