Mahnmal Aspangbahnhof = Aspang Railway Station Memorial : PRINZpod / Herausgeber, Kunst im öffentlichen Raum GmbH

Publication | Library Call Number: NA9355.V54 M34 2018

"In 1939 and 1941-42, a total of 47.035 Austrian Jews, men and women, were deported from Aspang Railway Station on 47 transports to Nazi-established ghettos, extermination camps, and killing sites. Only about one-thousand people survived. For most of the more than 66.000 Austrian Holocaust victims, the journey to extermination began in mid-town Vienna. The City of Vienna has set up a memorial in remembrance of the Jewish Austrians who were deported from here and eventually murdered. PRINZpod's Aspang Railway Station Memorial consists of two 30 meter long converging concrete rails as a reference to the rail tracks at the station, which was demolished in 1977. The rails lead into a dark and hollow concrete block, a symbol of death, nothingness, and oblivion"--Publisher's website.
