Aspang Bahnhof


It was from the Aspang Bahnhof in Vienna that about 50,000 Jews from Austria in 47 transports were deported between 1939 and 1942 to Nazi ghettos, concentration- and extermination camps in Eastern Europe.

Current status: Monument (2008).

Address: Aspangstrasse, 1030 Wien.

Get there: Commuter train to Rennweg station.

My comment:

The monument is located in a small well-kept park. About 65,000 Austrian Jews were murdered by the nazis between 1938 and 1945.
