The Austrian Holocaust Memorial Service deals mainly with victims of National Socialism. Servants work at commemoration sites of the Holocaust, museums and historical research institutes such as the Simon Wisenthal Center in Los Angeles, the Jewish Museum Berlin, the European Roma Rights Centre in Budapest or Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. The work at the various locations consists mainly of designing and organizing guided tours, editing archives, lecturing in universities and schools and interviewing contemporary witnesses to preserve their experiences for future generations.
Since several years, Austrian Holocaust Memorial Servants are also sent to locations in former immigration countries of groups persecuted by the Nazi regime, for example the Casa Stefan Zweig in Petrópolis, Brazil, the Center for Jewish Studies in Shanghai as well as the Jewish Museum of Australia in Melbourne. In the past two decades, hundreds of young Servants in twenty-two countries worldwide devoted themselves to the history of the Holocaust and have thereby contributed to the Austrian process of coming to terms with the past and the rapprochement of victims and minorities.
