The owners of a pastry shop that showcases cakes decorated with Nazi themes should be prosecuted, a Holocaust awareness group said yesterday.

The bakery, in the village of Maria Enzersdorf, in the Mödling district, near Vienna, features photos of cakes adorned with swastikas and other Nazi-era symbols, including an arm raised in a Hitler salute, the Mauthausen Committee said.

Austrian law bans the glorification of the Nazi era and any attempt to diminish, deny or justify the Holocaust.
