  • You can tell a lot about a Jew in Vienna, because Jews really had to endure much. I would like to remember this, not repeated. The Memorial looks like a bookshelf with books, since Jews read a lot and the door without handles, closed forever. 65 thousand Austrian Jews were destroyed in different camps in different countries throughout Europe. Remember.

  • This might literally be the calmest place in Vienna. It is a well made and significant tribute. I loved its simplicity.  more »

  • Very small, yet remember this is only half the museum complex. The other half is over by the church. Get the Vienna Pass to go into this one. The excavation is amazing.
  • The medieval synagogue excavation is a treat. The Simon Weisenthal exhibition was worth the entrance fee alone.
  • Atmosphere is authentic, great way to send the message of the Holocaust, never forget
  • Not worth the money and time. The medieval ruins are cool, but that's about it. Ten minutes to see the whole thing.
  • The environment of the square is very beautiful and the message of the Jewish Holocaust memorial is something to never forget.
