exhibit overview

The exhibit

People in focus

Thank you very much for your interest in the exhibit! It is a living reminder and place of active confrontation with a dark chapter of Austrian contemporary history. The forced laborers at the Linz location of Reichswerke Hermann Göring, their fates and life histories are in focus at the exhibit.

The Hermann Göring works have had a large influence on the structure and economy of Linz. They have sustainably changed the social fabric of the city. The traces the works left behind in public life are still apparent today. Contrastingly, the effect on the former victims, the nature of their being forced and the extent of their labor was suppressed for many years and hidden from the public eye for a long period of time. A central objective of this exhibit is to tell the truth.
