Remembering Those Lost

The Monument Against War and Fascism is a work of the Austrian sculptor Alfred Hrdlicka. The monument serves as a reminder of a very dark chapter in Austrian history, and pays homage to all those who lost their lives. The split white monument, The Gates of Violence, remembers victims of all wars and violence, including the 1938–1945 Nazi rule of Austria. Take a moment to reflect that this monument stands on the spot where several hundred people were buried alive after the cellar they were hiding in was demolished in a WWII bombing raid. Although it's a dark subject, reflecting on this part of Vienna's history is something that's certainly not to be overlooked.
