History

Former resistance fighters, victims of Nazi persecution and committed academics set up the Dokumentationsarchiv des Österreichischen Widerstandes in 1963. In the initial phase, when DÖW staff felt constrained to provide proof of the historical contribution of Austrian resistance in the face of spiteful and hostile attacks, the most important task consisted in preparing documents and historical texts as the basis of historical research. At an even later date - in the 1980s - DÖW began to include studies on the murder of physically and mentally handicapped in its research program.
