    Memorial book

    Research and remember

    Since 2009 the Marpe Lanefesch memorial has housed the handwritten Memorial Book for the Victims of National Socialism at Vienna University in 1938.

    This memorial book is not a final piece of work but an open document and an opportunity to remember the past. Despite intensive investigation the list of names and supplementary online database are incomplete and the research process is ongoing. Hopefully still more unknown victims of National Socialism will be brought to light, so that they too can be part of this memorial book. Those responsible for the project are grateful for any information to this end.

    This is a belated, symbolic initiative, intended as a form of remembrance for the present and the future as well as a warning to members of the University to ‘nip things in the bud’ before they get out of hand.
