The Polish Council for the Protection of Struggle and Martyrdom lined up an new set of interpretive plaques at the entrance into the “Bergkristall” Underground Memorial of former Concentration Camp KZ Gusen II at St. Georgen/Gusen in December 2015. This new set of plaques was developed together with the Austrian Ministry of the Interior, the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft, Plattform Johann Gruber, and the Institute for Contemporary History of the Universtiy of Vienna upon proposal by the Gusen Memorial Committee and the Community of St. Georgen/Gusen. These plaques give now basic information about this huge former underground complex of KZ Gusen II to visitors in the languages German, English, Polish, and Italian. We thank especially the participating institutions of the Republic of Poland for financing these important new interpretive plaques that will serve many nations in the upcomming years.
