An official in the French town of Montpelier celebrated his birthday with a cake decorated with a swastika, that he described as "a gift from my SS friend."
Djamel Boumaaz posted an image of the cake on his Facebook page, the Simon Wiesenthal Center said on Thursday.
The full text of the post celebrating his 40th birthday read: "I spent a beautiful day with my family, music, food in the home of my SS friend, then my birthday cake arrived, a gift from my SS friend."
The post later appeared to have been removed from Boumaaz’s Facebook page. His Twitter account was suspended.
In 2016, Boumaaz was investigated by city prosecutors for his Twitter account, that was marked "forbidden to dogs and Jews" and featured tweets mocking and denying the Holocaust.
