He had been a member of the illegal Communist Party of Austria since 1940 and was the leader of its Maxglan section when he was arrested by the Gestapo on February 24, 1942. On March 3, 1943 he was sentenced to death for »conspiracy to commit high treason,« and he was executed in the Munich Stadelheim prison on July 30, 1943.
