In March 2018, the 80th anniversary of the “Anschluss” will be remembered. The City of Vienna will want to mark this historic occasion with an appropriately outstanding project that will evoke a dignified and lasting impression in Austria, in Europe and all over the world.
The Association has proposed to the City Council of Vienna, that they decide to declare the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial as an official City Project to mark this occasion.
The Republic of Austria has decided that the “Memorial Year 2018” will be dedicated to intense reflections about Austria’s past. The Shoah Wall of Names Memorial Project meets the objectives of this intent in a uniquely appropriate manner.
With the realization of the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial, the Duty to remember will be preserved, for the Austria of today and for its future Generations.
As of the end of 2016, the planning for the Project as well as its outstanding architecture, were entirely completed. Construction can still take place on time for the “Memorial Year 2018”. The Project now awaits the official Agreement by the City of Vienna and by the Government of Austria.
