A German man is facing up to six months in jail for having a speech by Adolf Hitler as his mobile phone ringtone.
The 54-year-old had a Hitler speech – in which the Fuhrer pledged the ‘destruction of world Jewry’ if Germany was ‘dragged’ into war – programmed into his Nokia phone.
Passengers aboard a train in Hamburg heard the bizarre ringtone several times during a journey and reported him to police who seized him when the train stopped.
When he was taken into custody, police also found swastika stickers and a photo of Hitler on the telephone with the words: ‘The greatest commander of all time’.
He was charged with violating the German constitution which expressly forbids public displays of the Nazis and all their works.
