Gedenkstätte für die in der Shoah ermordeten Juden Österreichs / Memorial to the austrian jews who were murdered in the Shoah

A PLACE OF REVERENCE

By surrounding the grounds of the Memorial and leaving only one entrance, the Walls of Names will create a Place of Reverence.

Descendants of those who were murdered should, without being disturbed, be able to search for the names of their relatives, to touch the letters with their hand, to say a prayer, to light a memorial candle.

For all Austrians, the Memorial should offer a quiet place, in which they can remember the fate of their Jewish fellow citizens and honor their lives, today and in future generations.
