An aged care facility that is home to Holocaust survivors has been defaced with swastikas by a neo-Nazi organisation.
The extremist group, Antipodean Resistance, vandalised the front gates of Emmy Monash Aged Care in Caulfield, south-east Melbourne, with their swastika-laden logo.
The anti-Semitic design was discovered by a man as he was visiting his parents, both aged 94, on New Years Day.

Sam Seigel, was shocked at the find, and labelled it ‘disturbing’.
‘I saw it stuck to the front gates. I just stood there and looked – it knocked me about,’ he told the Herald Sun.
‘You don’t expect to see those sorts of things, especially at an aged-care residence.’ he said.
Mr Seigel said that many of the home’s residents were Holocaust survivors and that they would be horrified to see the logo outside their home.
The stickers displayed the logo from neo-Nazi extremist group Antipodean Resistance, (pictured) have been terrorizing Melbourne with propaganda since their founding in 2016
The group describe themselves as ‘the Hitlers you’ve been waiting for’
Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission Dr Dvir Abramovich also condemmed the sickening attacks, brandishing them as ‘cowardly and evil’.
‘We are appalled by this latest attack, made all the more despicable as there are Holocaust survivors living in this aged-care home who lost family relatives and suffered under Hitler’s regimen,’ he said.
The recent attacks come as concerns that anti-Semitism is on the rise in Australia with the commission recording the ‘largest single-year increase’ of attacks in 2018.
The Antipodean Resistance are a group of radicalised neo-Nazis who describe themselves as ‘the Hitlers you’ve been waiting for’.
The logo, which clearly shows the swastika, have been spotted at various locations around Australia, including The University of Queensland (left) and Chippendale, Sydney park sign (right)
Other propoganda that has been sighted ranges from stickers targeting youth (left) and posters that condemns marriage equality and the LGBTQI community
Despite being founded in Melbourne in 2016, the group’s logo has been spotted around the country in recent months.
The logo was stuck up on a City of Sydney park sign in Chippendale, and spotted on telegraph poles throughout the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.
