Stones of Remembrance in St. Pölten

575 men, women and children of the Jewish community St. Pölten known by name were murdered during the Holocaust. In cooperation with the city of St. Pölten we will begin to place Stones of Remembrance for these people in October 2018 as a sign of individual remembrance and to mark the 30th anniversary of the Injoest. The 18x18 cm large brass plates with names, women's birth name, date of birth, date of deportation and where ascertainable date of death will be placed on the sidewalk in front of the last voluntary address. We would like to thank the Viennese association |Stones of Remembrance| for its expertise and support!

The first eleven stones at eight addresses for 28 murdered people will be set at the beginning of October 2018 in the presence of Mayor Mag. Matthias Stadler and of relatives from Austria, Switzerland, the USA, Great Britain and Argentina. This ceremony is to be held in cooperation with the current owners and residents of the houses. An accompanying brochure with personal thoughts of the relatives will document the life and fate of the victims. These are already entered in the online |Memory Book|.

The setting of the stones will be continued every year, with the aim of placing them at all the approximately 60 St. Pölten addresses and others in all the places of residence of the catchment area of the former Jewish community.
