Download PDF for this date

The Austrian Government announced here today that it will erect a memorial museum at the site of the former Nazi concentration camp at Mauthausen, where many thousands of Jews perished during the Hitler regime.

The museum will show the conditions under which the inmates were kept at Mauthausen and its several branches, such as Ecbensee, in Upper Austria, near Linz.
