The ESRA Psychosocial Centre offers comprehensive professional help to people who have been traumatised as a result of persecution, torture, migration, abuse, disasters or other serious events. One of its focuses is work with survivors, regardless of religion, ethnic group, political conviction or sexual orientation, of the Nazi regime and their descendants and relatives. ESRA is also a contact point in all psychosocial questions for Jewish people living in Vienna.
All our services are free of charge or available through presentation of an e-card. In the light of our long experience of psycho-trauma, we also consider it important to provide information to the public about the psychosocial consequences of Nazi, Fascist or other tyrannical regimes.

The purpose-built, four storey campus houses a day nursery, a kindergarten, an elementary school (combined with after-school care club) and a secondary school with focus on natural sciences and mathematics. Both schools are permanently accredited by the Ministry of Education.
The school pursues educational and interpersonal goals and values, mainly Jewish Education, personality development and integration. Our unique approach to strive for those values in all our facilities on the campus makes us an exceptional institution.
