Quotation: “On the other hand, he criticizes the fact that the desecration had only become public by an indiscretion. Because on Friday, when the graffiti was discovered, no reaction was issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, says Mernyi to derStandard.at. He would, however, have expected that the official Austria would firmly condemn this action. Once again, the “Austrian way” was chosen, according to Mernyi, meaning that the Ministry wanted to keep it a secret.”

Quotation: “We do everything to make and keep Mauthausen a place of learning. We see the memorial as a living place of critical confrontation with our own history and a place of humanistic education. The redesign of the memorial often puts the success of our pedagogical team into the background although its creation was one of the first initiatives of this process. An excellent pedagogical team and 100 professionally educated guides are here to carry on and convey the history and the histories of this difficult place.”
