Kreuzstadl in Rechnitz serves as a symbol for one of the most terrible crimes during the Nazi era and its suppression following the end of the war. Kreuzstadl, named after its cross-shaped ground-plan, remains only in its ruins. The organisation RE.F.U.G.I.U.S. – Rechnitz Refugee and Memorial Initiative – keeps the place as a memorial to remember the 200 Hungarian-Jewish forced labourers, who were killed near Kreuzstadl in 1945. In this way it also serves as a memorial for the numerous people who were killed along the border in Burgenland, as well as on Hungarian grounds. An open-air information center by Kreuzstadl illustrates the measure of the inhuman atrocities taking place at the end of the Second World War, using words, pictures, biographies, graphics, literary citations, objects and videos.
