Austrian filmmaker Andreas Sulzer discovered a second, previously unknown underground structure at St. Georgen/Gusen, Austria last week but Austrian authorities stopped any further exploration after getting proper notification by the Community of St. Georgen/Gusen.

This second, previously unknown subterranean object was located after extensive study of old Allied intelligence reports and it gives once more further prove that the underground world of KZ Gusen II (St. Georgen) might be much more bigger than the currently known “Bergkristall” system with nearly 50.000 square meters of bomb-proof production area at the end of World War II.

Sulzer discovered a first, previously unknown octagonal underground structure already in December 2013. But also this object did not receive appropriate attention by the Austrian state authorities up to now.

The 2014 “apc” is dedicated to the former KZ Gusen II concentration camp. More than 300 youths will meet with Holocaust survivors like Sister Joela Krüger (Germany), Dr. Lucia Heilman (Austria), Michaela Vidlakova (Czech Republic), and Mr. Marko Feingold (Austria) and will pray for the victims inside the former KZ Gusen II “Bergkristall” tunnels at St. Georgen/Gusen, Austria for the first time since the end of World War II.

A group of Naturfreunde Steyregg took a whole Saturday afternoon with president Franz Froehlich on November 29, 2014, in order to walk in the footsteps of the former KZ Gusen I & II concentration camps. After a competent introduction by Rudolf Haunschmied in the KZ Gusen Visitor Center, the interested participants went with headsets along Audiowalk Gusen that runs between the Memorial Crematorium KZ Gusen and the former underground factory Bergkristall” at St. Georgen/Gusen, Austria. At the end of the tour, the group lit a candle in silent tribute to the 40,000 victims of the former KZ Gusen complex of concentration camps at the former crematorium.
