Today, we would like to remember those who suffered during the Holocaust. This event did not just destroy the hundreds of Jewish athletic and social clubs around Europe, but it destroyed the foundations of thousands of communities and decimated Jewish life in Europe. Members of SC Hakoah Wien had organized a boat for families and tried to evacuate to Mandate Palestine. Not all were successful or chose to come to Palestine and many perished at the hands of the Nazis.
Today, we honor their memory and we will always salute them in the field of athletic competition.
