This visualisation of the Shoah Wall of Names Memorial was prepared in the year 2010 by our architectural consultant Dr. John Cirka, Professor at Ryerson University in Toronto. It was an outstanding portrayal of the Memorial, as we, the Members of the Association, had imagined it.

In the following years, this visualisation was reproduced in all documentations of the Memorial. It made a significant impression on the authorities of the City of Vienna and of the Austrian Federal Government, even though they were not as yet prepared to give us their approval.

The visualisation had acquired an iconic presence, which is why we continue to keep it in the Project Website.
