The Fund for the Restoration of the Jewish Cemeteries in Austria (Federal Law Gazette I no. 99/2010) was established in December 2010 in implementation of Austria’s international legal obligation set out in the “Washington Agreement” to restore and maintain known and unknown Jewish cemeteries in Austria. For this purpose, the Fund, established under the auspices of the National Council, is allocated an annual sum of one million Euros by the Federation over a period of twenty years; the Law also stipulates that the respective owners of the Jewish cemeteries contribute funds for the restoration work in the same amount.
