See Featured Authors Answering Questions. Azur The original title was actually “Ten little niggers”. Since this is pretty offensive it was changed to “Ten little Indians”.
This was deemed offensive too, so today they use the last line of the children’s rhyme as title and the little figures were changed to soldiers. Information from my copy of the book.

Avery Crocker Yeah wasn’t Agatha Christie actually racist? Jan 16, Sandra Agatha Christie may or may not have been racist, I will not pretend to know.
The title of the book was indeed inspired by the quirky Curtis Island, on Agatha Christie may or may not have been racist, I will not pretend to know.
The island was renamed Curtis in after Cyrus H. Curtis, publisher of the Saturday Evening Post, a long time resident and diex of Camden. The book and its original title should be pout back into context – when it was written, then when and why it was adapted to the US market. Honestly, I don’t know why it has been changed in english versions, it’s a pitty that political correctness has even censur the classics. The history is freely available, as witness this thread.
Jan 25, Esgalnor In Czech, the oldest translated version is named, in translation, “Ten little niggers”. Just a few years ago, we started to use “And then there were none,” of course because of the political correctness.
I feel kinda sad, that P.
People are getting really crazy, few decades ago, no one would even think, that it could offend anyone. And chrristie we are, in it’s here. View all 6 comments.
Sep 20, Angelina Cara To much P. View all 5 comments. I think the reason why so many people erroneously think that the “real” title is “Ten LIttle Indians” is because that was the name of the play based on the book, and also the title of most of the film adaptations.
So the title “And Then There Were None” isn’t newit’s been around since the book was published in the United States in or What IS relatively new is that the estate of Agatha Negrjtos recently changed the book in the early ‘s don’t know the exact date to not only change the “Indian” references to “Soldiers”, but also change the phrase “n in the woodpile” which occurs twice in the book.
The play has also been changed to reflect this and most productions now use the title “And Then There Were None”, although some use “Ten Little Soldiers. So why should native Americans be happy, too? Medina Dennie Maybe because the word “Indian” is racist, god.
Sara Townsend I managed to find a rather battered paperback copy of this book, printed infrom a second hand book shop a few years ago. As it still had the original title I thought it was worth the investment! The story itself hasn’t changed, but in our more enlightened age modern reprints avoid using the offensive word in the original title. Caitlin Probably because while it has negative connotations against poor ignorant white people, poor ignorant white people weren’t enslaved for hundreds of ye Probably because while it has negative connotations against poor ignorant white people, poor ignorant white people weren’t enslaved for hundreds of years and systematically stripped of basic human rights because they were white.
MrsER So, Caitlin, do you think that because a people have been enslaved–over a hundred years ago and freed by a bunch of whites–they must find offense on So, Caitlin, do you think that because a people have been enslaved–over a hundred years ago and freed by a bunch of whites–they must find offense on a name which they actually use among themselves?
As for “poor ignorant white people” never being “enslaved for hundreds of years,” I will direct you to this interesting article from Wikipedia: Although I do not consider Wiki an historical source, the information will open your mind to the fact that not only blacks were enslaved.
Altug Karakurt I read this book in Turkey and in Turkish and the title of that version can be translated as “Ten Little Niggers” and yes there actually is a specific word for nigger in Turkish.
I had the book under both titles. The name change, I think, doesn’t require explanation. Joan Bannan Oh gosh! I had no idea there were other titles.
Times have certainly changed since the late thirties. I was surprised by the reference to the “Little Jew” and the comment not to discredit “their’ money management. No one would write something like that today negditos they were painting the character of of a bigot. Thomas Hiller The changes suffered by the original title of this masterpiece of mystery are a sort of story of the contemporary bigotry and of its disturbing, useless hypocrisy, in the name of the “political correctness”.
