About the Monument for the Victims of FascismBehind the Opera House, next to the Duke Albrecht Palace, you can see the monument in memory of the victims of Fascism. The purpose of this monument is to remember the dark and difficult periods in the life of the Austrian nation and it is dedicated to the victims of World War II.
The monument against the war and Fascism was established in 1985 by the Austrian sculptor Alfred Hrdlicka, and it is not by accident that it is located here. In the course of air
attacks in 1947, a building called "Philiphoff House" blew up in this place and took hundreds of victims.
