Rather than face deportation and murder, a number of victims of Nazi oppression committed suicide. For example, in the wake of Germany's annexation of Austria, hundreds of Jews took their own lives. Today this final act of desperation is seen as an act of resistance, of an attempt at some sort of self-determination by the victims of Nazi oppression. This project seeks to collect the profiles of those who took their own lives, rather than allow the Nazis to murder them.
