Monument Against Fascism 2

This monument was erected in 1985. It stands on the site of the former Hotel Metropol which was taken over by the Gestapo for their Headquarters in 1938. Many Jews were murdered here. It was bombed in 1945 and burned. The ruins were totally removed after the war. A good translation of the German text is —


Never Forget


Here stood the House of the Gestapo.

To those who believed in Austria it was hell.

To many it was the Gates to death.

It sank into ruins just like the 1,000 Year Reich.

But Austria was resurrected and with her our dead, the immortal victims.
