    KZ-Gedenkstatte Mauthausen
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Become acquainted with the history of Mauthausen Memorial during the 2,5-hour ride from Vienna. By the summer of 1940, Mauthausen had become one of the largest labor camp complexes in the German-occupied part of Europe. Some 200,000 people are thought to have been imprisoned at Mauthausen between 1938 and 1945, and about half of them lost their lives. Mauthausen was among the last concentration camps to be liberated by the Allies. Upon arrival at the Memorial grab your audio guide (available in 11 languages) for a self-guided tour through the preserved grounds. See the prisoner’s barracks, Wiener-Graben quarry, the so-called 'Stairs of Death', SS-quarters, camp prison, gas chamber and the highly rated Mauthausen Museum. Heading back to Vienna stop at a local restaurant for lunch (own expense).

Terrible place and as related to Jews who escaped, I was really upset, and still am, by the horrors. However, it is really worth going, to see why it was so important we won the war, as the Austrians were as horrific as the Germans and actually tried to escape responsibility
