This attractive square wedged between the Staatsoper and the Albertina stands out for its Monument Against War & Fascism , by Alfred Hrdlicka (1988). The series of pale block-like sculptures has a dark, squat shape wrapped in barbed wire, representing a Jew scrubbing the floor; poignantly, the greyish block originally came from the Mauthausen concentration camp.
