With a thematic focus and an impressive video projection under the title “#eachnamematters,” the Mauthausen Memorial will give the thousands of victims a face from May 4 to 6, 2021, and contrast the mere number of 90,000 with concrete names and individual life stories. The projection, which will also be viewable via livestream in cooperation with Ars Electronica Home Delivery, will be accompanied by a social media campaign under the hashtag #eachnamematters.

The liberation of the former Mauthausen concentration camp on May 5, 1945 by the U.S. Army is a pivotal date and the final point of the years of Nazi terror that claimed the lives of 90,000 people in the Mauthausen concentration camp system.

In cooperation with Ars Electronica Linz and with the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior, all the names of those who died in the Mauthausen concentration camp system known to date will be projected onto the outer wall of the former Mauthausen concentration camp and read out in an elaborate video projection.

Around the date of liberation on May 5, all people are called upon to share their memories, thoughts and impressions of individual biographies on social media under the hashtag #eachnamematters. Simply search for a biography (enter first name and/or last name in the search field) in the digital “Room of Names” at raumdernamen.mauthausen-memorial.org. The selected biography, preferably with personal words and thoughts, should then be posted under the hashtag #eachnamematters.
