Stations of Remembrance in Neubau
Prior to 1938 Neubau had a high percentage of Jewish residents. 14, 8 percent of the population was Jewish and Jewish life significantly shaped the district. The most important prayer house was in Schottenfeldgasse 60. It was used by Jewish people from the 6th and 7th district.
Life in Vienna changed abruptly when the Nazis came into power.
The Jewish inhabitants were deprived of their dignity, their belongings and their rights. Within a very short time they were either displaced or murdered; 950 people from Neubau fell victim to the extermination.
