During the days of the World War II, the German soldiers used to frequent a series of cafes called Soldatenkaffee (Soldier's Cafe) in Nazi-occupies Paris. The original cafes probably no longer exist, but a namesake has opened its doors in the West Java provincial capital of Bandung, Indonesia’s third largest city. The Indonesian Soldatenkaffee is peculiar decor: a portrait of Adolf Hitler occupies a prominent location above the fireplace, while several Nazi memorabilia including a large wrought iron Third Reich eagle, swastikas, posters, flags and Nazi propaganda adorn the walls. Some of the Führer’s best quotes are also printed on the walls. The waiters serve food dressed in Waffen SS uniform complete with Nazi armbands. But Soldatenkaffee is not a Nazi-themed restaurant, its owner insist.
