Nestled along the Danube in southern Germany, Passau is a pleasant tourist destination known for its historic buildings and scenic views at the intersection of three rivers. But at twenty years old, Rosmus stumbled upon a much darker, long-buried history linking her hometown to the Nazi efforts during World War II. In 1994, just before the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the war, she set out to commemorate the forgotten Holocaust victims who had died in Passau, expecting to be greeted with little resistance.
