The Commemorative Year 2018
The year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of Austria’s Anschluss to Nazi Germany. To mark this occasion, WU is organizing a number of activities intended to critically examine the role of its predecessor institution, the University of World Trade, in the years from 1938 to 1945.
How did Nazification affect the university, its faculty, students, and administrative staff? What did Austria’s Anschluss to Nazi Germany mean for the development of the University of World Trade?
On these pages, you can find a timeline (in German) of the most important historical developments that marked the period from 1938 to 1945 and a schedule of the events WU has planned, where we will be taking a close look at the years between the Anschluss and Austria’s eventual liberation from Nazi rule.
