    The shelter on Marc Aurel St. was established and by Aaron Menczer, a young man with no formal education, a committed Zionist who stayed in Vienna while all other leaders of the youth movements fled, following the Kristalnacht. Adolf Eichmann encouraged the immigration of the children living in the shelter. He visited the place often, showing interest in their activities. Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein, who acted as the head of the Jewish Committee in Vienna, recalls Eichmanns' enthusiasm for the immigration; "not banal," he states, "but a cruel corrupt man." These Viennese children, now in their late 80s, remember well their neighbors, "the silent majority," who stood by and watched. Aaron Menczer succeeded in saving the lives of many Jewish children. Not his own. He was sent to Theresienstadt and later on with a group of over 1000 Polish children to Auschwitz, where they all perished.
