This is a powerful, stark art / rememberence piece by the British artist Rachel Whiteread. It represents the many lost and untold stories of the Jewish lives lost to the fascist, Nazi regime. What a shame more of the tourists in the shopping streets just...More

this memorial,to the thousands of austrian jews who were sent to thier deaths during ww2,is a large tribute in the jewish area of vienna.it is a library built of brick books facing inwards,and is a fascinating building to see.a fitting tribute to the 65,000.

Beyond the obvious sadness of the tragedy attached to this memorial was the sadness I felt for the lack of visitors. In the 20+ minutes we spent here, only one other family appeared. A couple blocks away were wall to wall people in the Stephansplatz...More
