The Vienna Project —

The Vienna Project — | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

The Vienna Project is a new social action memorial project.  Slated to begin in October of 2013 and conclude in May of 2014, the project is to be situated on the streets of Vienna and along the Danube Canal.  If you are interested in participating in our Sidewalk Installation Project, click here.

The Vienna Project will be the first public art memorial of its kind in Europe and the first public naming memorial in Vienna to symbolically represent, in a differentiated format, the multiple groups of persecuted victims of National Socialism, while also naming individual victims and dissidents on record within a given country, murdered between 1938-1945. Forging a dynamic relationship between different disciplines: art, video, new technologies, typography, web design, street theater, sound art, history, archival research, and Holocaust education, The Vienna Project is envisioned as a “living” memorial based on a participatory model of engagement. READ MORE…

Anyways it worths following the outcome of that project

Centropa | Jewish witness to a european century

Many of our Viennese interviewees were born elsewhere, and they have brought with them a colorful collection of pictures of growing up in Czernowitz, Lemberg, Budapest and in Romanian cities. A few of our interviewees hail from rural Austria, providing us with a unique view of small town Jewish life.

Nearly every one of our Viennese interviewees survived the war by fleeing to the USSR, the UK, the US or Palestine. All returned-for a variety of reasons-in the years after.

Regrettably, we have not yet secured grants to translate many of these interviews into English (we are still looking) but as you will see, they are all available in German
