Remembering Schottenbastei Jewish pupils

Organised by the history teacher of the Realgymnasium Schottenbastei (formerly the Realschule Schottenbastei), a memorial tribute in the form of a plaque has been unveiled at this Vienna school. The plaque commemorates the 436 Jewish pupils who, between 1933 and 1938, attended, or were assigned to, the school until finally expelled on 1 July 1938. Of the 62 former pupils in various parts of the world who responded to an invitation to attend the memorial event, eight former pupils did so, including two from the UK.

More plaques at similarly affected Vienna schools are planned.
