Austrian Holocaust Memorial Service is a recognized alternative to Austria’s compulsory military service. Through this program, young Austrians can contribute to the reappraisal of Austria’s role in the Second World War and the Holocaust. Bo Leiter, who is completing his memorial service (Gedenkdienst) at the Neuberger, discusses important moments in Austria’s understanding of its history, his role in contributing to this dialogue, and his reasons for choosing Holocaust Memorial Service.
