An Afghan migrant who was a huge fan of Hitler because he killed so many Jews has appeared in court on charges of having tortured and raped his girlfriend with an iron bar and an umbrella.
The man identified only as Yama W., 30, has been accused by a court in the German city of Frankfurt of 17 offences. Among the charges are bodily harm, coercion, rape, sexual compulsion, attempted robbery and blackmail.
Yama W. has allegedly raped his 18-year-old girlfriend Sonja (name changed under German privacy laws) with an iron bar.
He admitted the charges, but said he was just trying to "turn her on".
Another time, he allegedly used an umbrella to rape the young student.
When the young woman wanted to escape naked from their common apartment in Friedrichsdorf, a town some 12 miles north of Frankfurt, he allegedly dragged her back into the building and threatened to kill her.
The Afghan defended what had happened, saying: "I asked her to come back. I do not know why things went downhill so much."
He has also allegedly sent naked photos of Sonja to her parents to try to blackmail them.
Sonja's father said: "He wanted €1,000 EUR (£890) and threatened us with the Hells Angels."
According to his girlfriend, Yama W. wanted to fight against the West in Afghanistan and had been speaking about jihad a lot.
One policeman has clarified in court that the Afghan migrant is a big fan of Hitler and owns a large DVD collection with movies about the Fuehrer.
Yama W. allegedly said: "Hitler was a great man because he was the only one who managed to kill many Jews."
According to local media, the Afghan tried to blame his behaviour on alcohol, marijuana and cocaine.
A verdict is expected to be reached today.
