Austria: Man Convicted of Glorifying Nazi Ideas

VIENNA (AP) - An Austrian court has convicted a man of
glorifying Nazi ideology and sentenced him to two years in prison.

The court in the southern city of Klagenfurt found the
85-year-old man, who was not identified, guilty Wednesday of
"re-engaging" in Nazi-era beliefs.

The prosecution had accused him, among other things, of
glorifying Adolf Hitler and Nazi beliefs in two books. The Austria
Press Agency said the man is a veteran of the SS, which acted as a
special police force during Nazi times.

Austrian law bans the glorification of Hitler and the Nazi era,
as well as attempts to diminish, deny or justify the Holocaust.
