Nazi cake baker faces jail


Share This Article:

An Austrian baker might find himself in jail for baking a cake decorated with swastikas and other Nazi symbols.

Manfred Klaschka, owner of the bakery in Maria Enzersdorf, near Vienna, made the $128 cake for a customer several years ago.

Photos of the cake, which was also decorated with an arm performing a Sieg Heil salute, can still be seen in a binder for customers to see previously baked goods.

The Mauthausen Committie, a holocaust awareness group, are less than happy with the Nazi pastries and have Austrian prosecutors to press charges against the shop.

Klaschka tried not to get dragged into the scandal saying on Austrian TV, "If it's requested, it's made. I don't want to be pulled into this because I'm a confectioner, and there's nothing more to it."

The Third Reich-themed cake also featured a German fighter plane, a soldier's helmet and a Nazi military decoration.
