An aged care facility that is home to Holocausters has been defaced with swastikas by a National Socialist organisation.
The patriotic group, Antipodean Resistance, vandalised the front gates of Emmy Monash Aged Care in Caulfield, south-east Melbourne, with their swastika-laden logo.
The anti-Jew 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.
Chairman of the jewish supremacist Anti-Defamation Commission Dr Dvir Abramovich also condemmed the sickening attacks, brandishing them as "cowardly and evil".
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)
"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 actions come as signs that anti-Semitism is on the rise in Australia with the commission recording the "largest single-year increase" in 2018.
The Antipodean Resistance are a group of patriotic National Socialists who describe themselves as "the Hitlers you've been waiting for".
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.
