Heidemarie Uhl 1956–2023

We mourn the loss of Heidemarie Uhl. The renowned Austrian contemporary historian recently passed away at the age of 66. Her research focused on the topics of memory culture and memory politics with a focus on the Second World War. With her important work and her comprehensive commitment to remembering, Heidemarie Uhl influenced new museum and exhibition concepts, including that of the Sigmund Freud Museum.

In the 2003 catalog for the exhibition "Freud's Lost Neighbors" at the Sigmund Freud Museum, she wrote the text "Berggasse 19. Readings of a Multilayered Memory Site", and in the catalog "FREUD, Berggasse 19. The Origin of Psychoanalysis," on the occasion of the reopening of the Sigmund Freud Museum in 2020, she published, together with Michaela Raggam-Blesch, " Berggasse 19 after the Anschluss. Persecution and Exile, Group Apartments and Deportation".

The picture shows the list of Jewish residents expelled from the house or murdered during the Shoah in the Sigmund Freud Museum. This work goes back to the research on "Freud's Lost Neighbors."
