lecture by Charlotte Horst (LMU Munich)
The Topography of the Shoah
Memorial sites of Destroyed Jewish Vienna
The project draws on a desideratum with respect to the memory of Vienna, the “visualization” of persecution, expulsion and murder of the Jewish Viennese. The first results were published within the framework of the commemorative year 2008: the brochure “1938. Prelude to the Holocaust in Austria. Places – pictures – memories” (in German and English). This brochure was well-received and later purchased by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense for use in the classroom, in the Austrian Army, in cultural institutions etc.
