A memorial honoring the six million Jewish victims of the Nazi holocaust was unveiled at the former concentration camp Mauthausen this week. The memorial shows a seven-arm Menorah, six arms representing the six million dead Jews; the seventh, the eternal light. The ceremony was attended by former concentration camp inmates and representatives of the Austrian government, including Justice Minister Christian Broda and Interior Minister Otto Zoesch. The memorial was unveiled by Simon Wiesenthal, head of the Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna.
