On the sign:
Monument against War and Fascism
Alfred Hrdlicka (1928-2009)
Granite, marble, sandstone, bronze

The Gate of Violence
The sculpture Hinterland Front, is made of white Carrara marble and recalls the Nazi mass-murders in other prisons and concentration camps. It also perpetuates the memory of those killed while working for the Resistance and of those victimized on the grounds of their national, religious or ethnic membership as well as of their mental and physical disability or their sexual orientation. The group of figures Hero’s Death, is also made from white Carrara marble and is dedicated to the memory of all victims of war.

Street-washing Jew
National Socialist leaders began by terrorising Jews and political opponents. With Nazi Germany’s annexation of Austria on March 12th, 1938, Jewish men and women were forced to clean the streets and buildings of graffiti and slogans. The kneeling bronze figure entitled Street-washing Jew recalls the degradation that foreshadowed persecution and murder.
