German man convicted for having Hitler’s speech as ring toneJuly 2nd, 2010 - 5:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 2 (ANI): A German man has been locked up for six months for having set a speech by Adolf Hitler as his mobile phone ringtone.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the 54-year-old man had the Hitler speech as his ringtone, in which the Fuhrer pledged the ‘destruction of world Jewry’ if Germany was ‘dragged’ into war.
According to the paper, he was arrested at Harburg station on Tuesday, near the northern city of Hamburg, when his fellow passengers, shocked with the ringtone, swastika stickers, and a photo of Hitler on the telephone with the words ‘The greatest commander of all time’ alerted the police.
He was charged with violating the German constitution, which expressly forbids public displays of Nazis and all their works. (ANI)
