Commemoration and Reflection

For Austria, 2008 was a year of remembrance and reflection. What led to the founding of our Republic in 1918? What were the reasons for the annexation of Austria to the German Reich in 1938? How was our nation rebuilt after the anguish and the cruelties of World War II and the liberation in 1945? In 2008 Austria also remembered the year of 1968 and a generation of young people opposing war and incrusted structures. wien.at published many articles dealing with these events, our motto being: Those who do not know their past cannot understand the present. For, we are our history. And we are our future.
