Survey Participation Process Gusen Memorial

In 2021-22, the Republic of Austria purchased several properties at the site of the former Gusen I concentration camp and the entrance area to the “Bergkristall” tunnel system built by prisoners in St. Georgen an der Gusen. With your participation, the existing memorial will be developed further.

In order to ensure the broadest possible engagement of all regional, national and international interest groups right from the start, the Mauthausen Memorial launched a participation process to develop a master plan with design and functional guidelines.

After a comprehensive baseline survey was completed, the art:phalanx communications agency and architectural firm heri&salli began their work with the participation formats in August 2022.

Workshops, information events and interviews, including some with survivors of the Gusen concentration camp, ensure transparency and a collaborative partnership with the various interest groups, including representatives of victimised nations and victims’ organisations as well as the regional population.

Now you also have the opportunity to influence the commemoration of the future! Let us know what is important to you, what wishes and ideas you have with regard to the development of the memorial and take part in the online survey. The results will be published this summer.
The survey is available in English and German: go to survey
