This gate leads onto Heldenplatz Square - Heroes Square. This is precisely that famous imperial forum, the order for the construction of which was signed in 1881 by Franz Yosif. The most famous and notorious was the speech of Adolf Hitler, delivered by him here on March 15, 1938 after the Anschluss of Austria. In 2008, the year of the 70th anniversary of Anschluss and Hitler's speech, a ceremony was held on the square, called the Night of Silence. When people gathered in the square at night and lit 80 thousand candles in memory of the victims of fascism. Of the mentioned 80 thousand victims, 65 thousand candles were lit in memory from 65 thousand Jews. It is noteworthy that in Austria it is not customary to talk about the victims of Nazism. Here, as in the former USSR countries, the terminology of fascism is used. Translated with Google Translate
