Solemn inauguration in Brigittenau on October 7, 2016

 

The music group Avanim opened the ceremony with the song Eli, Eli, … and went on to embellish it by more songs.

Matthias Beier welcomed all family members, the initiators of a wall plaque and the District Council. District Councillor Florian Müller gave a very personal and touching speech. (Download)

Matthias Beier underlined the importance of the manifold support that Viennese people render to the Association. One possibility to support is to sponsor a Stone for a person with no surviving family members at all.
