For the 75th anniversary of Austria's liberation from the Nazi regime, teachers and students at the Institute of Architectural Theory, Art History and Cultural Studies at Graz University of Technology spent a semester conducting intensive research on the history of resistance to National Socialism in Styria. Employing tools of forensic architecture, four selected case studies—in Deutschlandsberg, Leoben, Eisenerz and Graz—form the starting point of the extensive research. The new insights based on the results of the archive inquiries were presented in an exhibition in public spaces of each city in the summer of 2020, including 3D visualizations, plan representations, diagrams and graphs. The publication at hand documenting the four exhibitions compiles research and design results, alongside with contributions by relevant scholars who categorize and contextualize the case studies within national and international academic discourse.

With contributions by Janika Döhr, Lisa-Marie Dorfleitner, Ema Drnda, Florian Eichelberger, Christian Fleck, Flora Flucher, Max Florian Frühwirth, Daniel Gethmann, Nicole-Melanie Goll, Heimo Halbrainer, Georg Hoffmann, Matthias Hölbling, Thomas Hönigmann, Waltraud P.
