  • “Nazi Military Justice” is an oxymoron, is it not? The monument itself is nothing impressive, but the explanatory text is worth reading, and if you are in the area (very likely as it is at the Volksgarten), go see it to contemplate for a moment or two about dissent and political opposition, and the courage it takes to join the resistence. It is also important to understand the process of a nation examining its own history. It took time, but Austria eventually saw the light.
  • The Memorial for the Victims of Nazi Military Justice is a relatively new monument in Vienna being inaugurated in 2014 at the corner of Volksgarten and Heldenplatz. The memorial is dedicated to the estimated 15,000 Germans and Austrians who deserted the Wehrmacht and were then executed during WWII an the Nazi reign over Austria. The memorial was designed by Olaf Nicolai and is simple three-step structure in the shape of an X. There is an information marker in the back corner of the memorial grounds, providing information regarding the memorial to those for whom it is dedicated. During our recent visit, we were able to see the Memorial for the Victims of Nazi Military Justice with a layer of snow on the ground. It had the effect of creating a more sobering atmosphere when viewing the memorial and reading about its purpose.
