Haus der Geschichte

Only the Violins Remain.

The first special exhibition of the House of Austrian History is devoted to Alma and Arnold Rosé, two icons of Austrian musical life and Viennese high society. It marks the 75th anniversary of Alma Rosé’s death in Auschwitz-Birkenau on 5 April 1944. In 1938, both Arnold and Alma Rosé’s careers, like those of many others, were abruptly cut short by the Anschluss, an event with which this location is closely connected. It was here, from the Neue Burg and to the rapturous applause of the masses below, that on 15 March 1938, Hitler officially announced the German annexation of Austria.

More than 66,000 Jewish Austrians did not survive the Shoah. Alma Rosé (1906–1944) was one of them. As the conductor of the women’s orchestra in Auschwitz-Birkenau she was able to save the lives of female Jewish musicians. Her father Arnold Rosé died in exile in London in 1946.

For many years, the two musicians were forgotten in Austria. Their famous violins are still played in the major opera houses and concert halls of the world. When the House of Austrian History opens, the exhibition space on the first floor of the Neue Burg, where changing exhibitions will be staged, will bear the name “Alma Rosé plateau”.
