A MAN who had a speech by Adolf Hitler as his ringtone could face up to three years in jail.

Police seized the 54-year-old's phone at Harburg station, near the northern city of Hamburg, after fellow train passengers, shocked by the sound of Hitler screaming, alerted police.

"It was an original speech by Adolf Hitler which ended with the phrase 'Sieg Heil'," police spokesman Ruediger Carstens said, adding that the man also had a picture of Hitler standing in front of a swastika on his phone.

Police have handed the case over to prosecutors.

Under German law, the man could face up to three years in prison or a fine.

The public display of Nazi symbols like the swastika have been banned in Germany since the end of World War II.

Is it a condition of the surrender of Germany, they may not do these things or display anything related to Hitler?

Now that's funny right there, I don't care who ya are. Amazing that in America neo-Nazis can have complete freedom of speech but, in Germany where they have actually felt the boot of Nazi oppression such acts are not tolerated. I believe in free speech but, I also believe in calling an idiot an idiot. Hooray for freedom.

No, I think it is merely the laws of Germany that have made large efforts to move on from such a terrible historical period.

Zounds!

Not a condition of surrender. Laws have developed over time that pertain to Hitler, contradiction to what is being taught about WWII can land your hind end in jail. It is considered a criminal act. They are not allowed to display any historical things from the Nazi era. It is pretty much the only area where free speech is forbidden. However since Germany is a Democracy they do allow for the Neo Nazi Party (NPD - National Democratic Party) to be registered and to be active. really rather funny in my eyes.

Another thing that is extremely difficult is to be critical of is Israel.....it's a real carrier killer.....but that is slowly changing.

Truth is stranger than fiction, because fiction has to make sense.
