Memorial Book for the Victims of National Socialism at the University of Vienna in 1938

This memorial book is accessible as an online database (http://gedenkbuch.univie.ac.at/, English version: http://gedenkbuch.univie.ac.at/index.php?id=435&L=2). It contains roughly 2,200 names and short biographies of victims who were persecuted, driven away and/or murdered - as Jews and/or for political reasons, professors, lecturers and students.

Besides the memorial function, the database (a 'work-in-progress') provides important biographical and genealogical information.

By announcing the presence of this database, those associated with this book and database hope to reach more persons concerned, or their affiliates, and then ask them to complete the contained information.
