100th anniversery Meeting: „Friedhof der Namenlosen“

For our 100th anniversery meeting, we made an guided tour to the famous cemetary, „Friedhof der Namenlosen“, which is located in the 11th district of Vienna. In the period from 1840 to 1950, there were buried bodies of drowned persons, who were washed up on the port area of the Danube. For most of them, neither their identity, nor the cause of death is known.
