Considering the very specific tendency of some people to find any mention
of Hitler offensive, I'd say the text should be modified in a manner
similar to this:
A quote whose source you find offensive. This includes, but is not
limited to, Hitler quotes.
. . . or we could just leave it as is, with a footnote explaining the
meaning behind the mention of Hitler quotes. Either way, I rather
suspect that entirely failing to mention "Hitler quotes" specifically
will result in greater incidence of people complaining that Hitler quotes
should be removed.
