FINANCING

The total costs of the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial were calculated in October 2018 at Euro 5.3 Million.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and the Government of Austria had decided in March 2018 to participate in the construction of the Memorial and to contribute 50% of the total costs.

On September 5th 2018, the Industriellenvereinigung of Austria organized a Fundraising Dinner for the Memorial. The financing of the Project benefited significantly from that event.

The nine Bundesländer, the regional provinces of Austria, have made an important contribution to the financing of the Memorial.

On November 6th 2018, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and the Government of Austria decided to entirely finance the remaining costs of the Memorial.

The technical investigations of the building site, which are required for the building permit application, could therefore be started on November 7th 2018. With this step, the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial is now fully on track toward its realization.
