The place became ruins overnight, and nearly 300 people were buried underground. Helmut Zielk, who was only 11 years old when the Nazis came to power, became the Minister of Education in post-war Austria. He first declared education as a national value and proclaimed the value of human dignity and freedom. Here in this place, he established a memorial site for the victims of fascism and the war. It is not only about Jews; according to Zilk, the Austrian national disaster began here when the Jews were forced to clean the street on their knees in the spring of 1938. By the way, he was injured in 1993. He opened a letter sent to him with explosive material and lost fingers on his left hand. After the assassination, he initiated the construction of a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust in the city. What did the Jews use to clean the sidewalks in Vienna after the Anschluss?

Visit Vienna through the game

This trip will lead you through the streets of old Vienna in such a way that characters and urban legends will introduce you to the city through questions and answers. A correct answer will lead to the next point on the route and sometimes to several points at once. Even if a question is not asked at a particular station, do not skip it to save time. Stations without questions provide essential information for giving a correct answer at the next station. Also, carefully read explanations for correct answers. They also bring helpful information. Remember, you are not competing against another team but against time. There is no need to run or ignore the city surrounding you because only correct answers will advance you, and incorrect ones will stop you. In the end, only the game time and the number of correct answers from each player or group of players count, regardless of when they started the game or when they finished it relative to another player or group. Just pressing the start game button will start the timer. Do not launch the game before reaching the starting point, or carefully read and study the game's rules. Finally, and most importantly - enjoy the city and the atmosphere. Good Luck!
