Towering Memories

Haus des MeeresThe mighty anti-aircraft bunker in Vienna’s 6th district, which is now home to the Aqua-Terra-Zoo “Haus des Meeres”, once played a significant role during World War II. As part of the permanent exhibition “Erinnern im Innern”, a 40-second clip reveals the true horror of the bombing of Vienna during the war. As the curator explains, the purpose of the exhibition is clear: “The direct confrontation with relicts of the Second World War should remind people how easily a regime of terror can destroy peace and tolerance.” Film directed by Manfred Christ.
