Commemoration 2020 Julia Mayr & Bernhard Muehleder
GMC members Julia Mayr and Bernhard Mühleder moderated the online commemoration, 9 May 2020.

The 2020 commemoration was dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the former Gusen I, II & III complex of concentartion camps and to “Humanity without Borders” and will focus on the fact that human rights are no longer a national issue since the end or World War II.

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic this international commemoration couldn´t take place at Memorial Crematroium KZ Gusen like in the last 25 years. It was held as an online-commemoration and was broadcast with the help of Freies Radio Freistadt (FRF) in several free radio stations in Austria.

Please find the broadcasting hours at the page of Freies Radio Freistadt (FRF) at this link.

The online-commemoration can be re-watched at Youtube here.

In addition, we also celebrated the 25th anniversiary of local-international commemorations at Gusen as joint cooperation between survivors, their organizations and families and people of the local population.
