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.
The government of Austria decided on March 14th 2018, to participate in the realization of the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial and to contribute 50% of the total costs.
The Mayor of Vienna, Dr. Michael Ludwig, confirmed in October 2018 that the City had dedicated the Ostarrichi Park as the new site for the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial. Located beside the AKH University Campus, the Ostarrichi Park is very well suited to the purpose.
On November 6th 2018, the Government of Austria decided to finance the entire costs of the Memorial. As of that date, the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial in Vienna is fully on track toward its realization.
