Catholic memorial vandalised by far-left extremists in Austria

Intolerance Against Christians reports that in the morning hours of the 19th of January, the ÖCV (Austrian Catholic Cartel Association) house was vandalised. A group of left-wing extremists entered the ÖCV house and smeared several signs in the entrance area with black paint.


This is a continuation of years of attacks by left-wing extremist forces against members of the ÖCV. There have already been such incidents in almost all Austrian university towns.

More recently, around the turn of the year, a memorial plaque for the ÖCVer Hans Karl Zeßner-Spitzenberg and Father Heinrich Maier, who were murdered by the National Socialists, was defaced with black paint at the fraternity house of the Nibelungia in Vienna.

“Obviously, these are targeted actions of forces that do not recognise the resistance of the ÖCV and its members against National Socialism and want to erase from history the historical legacy of the persons around the ÖCVer Leopold Figl for the Austrian struggle for freedom,” commented the suburban president Nikolaus Dorfstetter.
