Social media project: each name matters


5 May 1945, the day of the liberation of the Mauthausen concentration camp, is among the most important commemorative dates marked by the Mauthausen Memorial. Through our social media project ‘#eachnamematters’, we want to send a clear signal and give the victims, who were nameless at the time of their deaths, back their identity and dignity.
