American Snow White
The huntsman don't kill anyone, therefore making it more kid friendly and age appropriate.
The queen asks the mirror the question in a much more simple way, making it more American.
Disney modified it to fit the American culture because they wanted it to be entertaining and appropriate for kids. Not really to teach some sort of lesson
German Snow White
The Huntsman kills another animal and takes out two body parts to give to the queen, making it more violent.
The queen asks the mirror the same question in a formal and proper way that fits the German culture
The German culture prompts the adults to keep the story violent because they just want to teach the kids a lesson
Grimm Brothers and Disney
In the American version they call it a mirror but the germans call it a looking glass
The American Snow White cleans the dwarves house but the other Snow White eats some of their food
German dwarves don't have names but the American version does
America: The queen poisoned Snow White straight away. Grimm: Snow White "dies" three times
The prince kisses Snow White to wake her up in the American version, but in the German version, the apple gets dislodged and she spits it out
In the German version, the stepmom has to dance in red-hot iron shoes until she died
