RECOGNISING ALL VICTIMS OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM IN AUSTRIA
Some 30,000 survivors have approached the National Fund and received a gesture payment as a symbol of recognition – 157 million euros in total. In addition to this, from 2001 onwards compensation totalling approx. 175 million euros was paid to survivors for the loss of rented apartments.
Preserving the memory of the victims and their fates is a central task for the future. The National Fund keeps records of this knowledge in its archives and passes it on to future generations.
The National Fund works together with national and international organisations and remembrance and research institutions, in a combined effort to promote “learning from history” beyond Austria too.
