BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A high school in Maine is asking students to return yearbooks so a sticker can be affixed over a quote from Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Bangor High School Principal Paul Butler says no one caught the offensive quote that accompanied a senior’s photo before the yearbook was printed. The student’s quote referred to one attributed to Hitler: that “anyone who sees and paints a sky green and fields blue ought to be sterilized.”

Butler called the quote “regrettable.” He said all non-distributed books were affixed with a sticker.

Last week in Pennsylvania, a school district apologized after quotes from Hitler, communist leader Joseph Stalin and an Islamic State group leader were printed in a high school yearbook.

This story has been corrected to show Hitler’s first name is spelled Adolf, not Adolph
