article imageHitler ringtone lands man in prison, documents sold at auction

By Andrew Moran     Jul 2, 2010 in World
Berlin - A German man has been sentenced to six months in prison for having a speech by German dictator Adolf Hitler on his cell phone. Swastika stickers and a photo of Hitler were also found on the phone.
A speech by Adolf Hitler discussing the annihilation of Jews if Germany was dragged into a war would play every time a German man’s cell phone would ring, which led to the individual’s arrest when several people heard the ringer.
On a train in Hamburg, fellow passengers heard a Hitler speech on the 54-year-old German man’s phone and immediately reported him to police, according to Haaretz. The proper authorities arrested the man as soon as the train came to a stop.
ABC Online reports that police seized the handset and found swastika stickers and a photo of the German Chancellor with the words “the greatest commander of all time” on his phone.
The man was later charged with violating the German constitution, which forbids public display of Nazism. He could face up to six months in prison, reports CBS News.
In other news related to Hitler, documents on the dictator’s jail time in 1924 were sold to an anonymous bidder at an auction in Germany, reports the Associated Press. The approximately 500 documents were sold for $33,400.
