Alserstraße 53: 





Stone for Jenny, Gerda and Alfred Kürti

The station was created at the request of Benni Haspel from Israel on behalf of the Kurti family from Great Britain and Australia and honours their grandparents.

In addition to Benni Haspel, we would like to welcome Linda and Richard Kurti with their son Hugo from England and Susanne Zabehlicky-Scheffenegger from Vienna.

Unfortunately, the branch of the family from Australia (Peter Kurti) was unable to take part.


Lichtensteinstraße 53-55:





Stone for Gisela Kranz


The initiative goes back to the Mitterlechner family. It commemorates the grandmother’s former employer. Mr Mitterlechner recounts his childhood memories of Mrs Kranz, whom he visited there as a small child.


Porzellangasse 41:




Stone for the former residents Emilie Priester and Paul Riemer


Ms Linda Wagner researched the expulsion and murder of the residents of Porzellangasse 41 for an artistic project. She talks very vividly about the harrowing results of her research.


Müllnergasse 14:




Stone for Elsa and Sigmund Neumann



The initiative to lay the stone for their grandparents came from Ralph Weil from Canada. Unfortunately, neither he nor his relatives from Israel can be present.

Mrs Daliah Hindler reads his text contribution from the current brochure.


Servitengasse 5:



Stone for Liesbeth Weisz.



On the initiative of Mr Ingo Grumiller from Vienna for the sister of his foster father Martin Weihs.
