Mathausen Concentration Camp Memorial
From 1938 to 1945, the concentration camp in Mauthausen was, along with the concentration camp in Gusen and over 40 satellite camps, the central place of political, social and racist persecution by the National Socialist regime on Austrian soil. Of the approximately 190,000 people imprisoned here, about 90,000 were murdered.
Today, the Mauthausen concentration camp memorial is an international place of remembrance and historical-political education. In addition to the preserved historic buildings and facilities, the ‘Wiener Graben’ quarry with the ‘Todesstiege’, as well as the international monument park, two permanent exhibitions and the ‘Raum der Namen’ memorial room can be visited.
Educational offers and audio guide, as well as audio guide app in different languages.
