The National Fund of the Republic of Austria for Victims of National Socialism published a bilingual English and German, “Visitors’ guide to the Jewish cemeteries in Austria” jointly with the  Jewish religious communities and grassroots initiatives. It includes all known Jewish cemeteries as well as Jewish sections of cemeteries throughout Austria. It includes information on over 60 Jewish cemeteries and completed restoration projects. It can be accessed via the website of the Jewish Cemeteries Fund. FOGIS, the geo-information portal of the National Fund, also provides a chance to explore the cemeteries on interactive maps using GPS.
