Austrian Parliament President supports construction of a Holocaust museum in Vienna

As part of its ongoing efforts to combat antisemitism, Austrian Parliament President Wolfgang Sobotka has pledged his support for the establishment of a Holocaust museum in the Austrian capital, Vienna. The museum would serve as a place of remembrance and education, honoring the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and raising awareness about the dangers of hate and intolerance.

The call for a Holocaust museum in Vienna was made by the president of the Jewish Community Vienna, Oskar Deutsch.

Sobotka’s endorsement of the project sends a strong message about Austria’s ongoing commitment to preserving the memory of the Holocaust and fighting against anti-Semitism. By creating a space for education and remembrance, the Holocaust museum in Vienna will promote greater understanding and awareness about the atrocities of the past and the need to combat hate and intolerance in the present.
