The "Origin of Species" that first made it to Nazi Germany
I think Davidjay may have Germany during WWII in mind.
The following is recycled from here:

Which links to this commentary at Panda's Thumb.
The quote of the PT commentary that was posted at the AIGBusted site:
"[W]hat reached Germany was not the English version of Origin of Species, it was a translation by German paleontologist Heinrich Georg Bronn that was a main source of German notions of Darwinian evolution, and those notions were a distortion of Darwin's views. Bronn had a substantially different conception of evolution than Darwin, and Bronn's translation apparently incorporated a good bit of his own conception rather than being a straight translation of Darwin. Bronn even added an extra chapter to OoS incorporate his own ideas."
I had previously recycled the message to another topic, here. There I was responding to a message that contained:
Mr. Factnet writes:
Ham even equates justification for racial discrimination to evolutionary theory in his book "One Blood." He plays the Hitler card by saying this kind of thinking inspired Hitler in his quest to eliminate Jews and Gypsies. Typical "reductio ad Hitlerum" tactic.
Added by edit: I recommend reading further at that topic, from Mr. Factnet's message onward.
Edited by Minnemooseus, : Added by edit.
