The Gusen Memorial Committe sponsored a new showcase in the small St. Georgen Heritage Museum (Heimathaus) to present artifacts that were found inside the former “Bergkristall” underground plant to a broader public. Most of these artifacts were donated by Mr. Robert Bouchal to the St. Georgen Heritage Museum in 2013.

The “Heimathaus” St. Georgen shows many artifacts and documents related to the former “Bergkristall” underground plant of KZ Gusen II concentration camp at St. Georgen/Gusen. Custodian Franz Walzer even built a 3D plastic model of this huge underground plant that is on display in this tiny town museum too

The museum will be opened upon request. Visits can be arranged by calling Mr. Peter Vogtenhuber at ++43 7237 3496.
