Leitner, Juliana

Juliana (Julie) LEITNER was born in Salzburg on May 22, 1903 and was the third of the four children of the Catholic couple Crescentia and Josef LEITNER. The family had local citizenship rights in Salzburg and had lived on the first floor at 33 Franz-Josef-Straße since 1900. Juliana’s father Josef LEITNER was a freight agent and garage operator who died in March 1938.

Juliana LEITNER remained single and worked as a cook until she was admitted to the Salzburg State Asylum in January 1937. She was one of 85 patients who were deported from there to the Hartheim Castle killing center near Linz on May 21, 1941 — where they were all murdered. As with all the other victims of the Nazis’ secret »T4«1 program, the death of the 38 year old Juliana LEITNER was not recorded in the Salzburg police registration files. Juliana’s mother and three sisters survived the terror years. Her mother died in Salzburg at age 92.

1 It was called »T4« because its Berlin headquarters were located at Tiergartenstraße 4
