Hofmann, Anton

Anton HOFMANN was born in Vienna on October 20, 1900. He was an unmarried Catholic musician who had worked in Salzburg since March of 1937 and lived with a fellow musician at 52 Linzer Gasse.

Anton HOFMANN was admitted as a patient at the Salzburg State Psychiatric Hospital on May 6, 1940. On May 21, 1941 he was deported to the Hartheim killing center where he was murdered.

As with all the victims of the Nazi’s secret »T4«1 program to eliminate the handicapped, the death of this 40 year old man wasn’t noted in the police registration files of the city.

Normally patients admitted to the asylum were declared legally incompetent as soon as they were admitted but Anton HOFMANN was only declared legally incompetent on June 5, 1941, some days after his brutal death in Hartheim.

1 The »T-4« program was named after its headquarters address in Berlin at 4 Tiergartenstraße
