From 1938 to 1945, the Mauthausen Concentration Camp was the focal point of a system of more than 40 satellite camps and the central site of political, social, and racial persecution by the Nazi regime on Austrian soil. Of the approximately 190,000 people incarcerated here, at least 90,000 were murdered. The Mauthausen Memorial serves as a former crime scene, a place of remembrance, a cemetery for the mortal remains of thousands murdered here, and a site for political-historical education. Its mission is to anchor the history of the Mauthausen Concentration Camp and its satellite camps, the memory of its victims, and the responsibility of the perpetrators and bystanders in public consciousness. At the same time, it aims to foster public engagement with history in light of its significance for the present and future.
