Indonesian Nazi-themed cafe to close amid outrage[/url]
BANDUNG, Indonesia (AP) — The owner of a Nazi-themed cafe in central Indonesia said Monday he has decided to permanently close down amid intense pressure from home and abroad.
Henry Mulyana, who ran the Soldatenkaffee in the West Java provincial capital of Bandung, met with local authorities Monday, and tourism chief Herry M. Djauhari suggested that Mulyana change the name and theme of the cafe.
City officials had earlier expressed concerns about the cafe's motives and worried it might incite hate and racism in the town, which is a tourist destination.
Mulyana said he is considering his options, but will not reopen the Soldatenkaffee cafe.
