The book tells the story of Jewish people who lived and worked quietly in a street in Vienna until the annexation of Austria by the Nazis disrupted their life brutally. It also tells the incredible story of a group of dedicated Viennese citizens who got together many years later to trace the fate of these Jews and to put up a memorial in their memory.
The monograph was intended to give a lasting memory to those Jews who had been deported by the Nazis or had to flee into exile and whose names are largely forgotten. It has been edited by two experts in the field who have themselves participated in the project and also features articles written by the citizens.
