Therese BAMMER, née Rabeder, born on August 17, 1869 in Feldkirchen an der Donau (district Linz-Urfahr) and baptized Catholic, was the second wife of Franz Bammer, who was a court usher and widower, had three children from his first marriage.
After his death in 1919, the widow lived with her stepson Otto.

Mrs. BAMMER had been a patient at the Salzburg State Sanatorium since October 1924.
She was one of the 68 patients who were deported to Hartheim and murdered on April 16, 1941.

As with all victims of the National Socialist secret action »T4«1 , the death of the 71-year-old woman is not recorded in the police registration file of the city of Salzburg.

Her stepson Otto, who was curator (Sachwalter) for his sick stepmother, survived the terror years in Salzburg and died here in 1951.

1 »T4« named after the »euthanasia« headquarters in Berlin, Tiergartenstraße 4.
Those mainly responsible for the murders of the sick in Salzburg: Dr. Friedrich Rainer as Reichsstatthalter, Dr. Oskar Hausner as head of the Gaufürsorgeamt, Dr. Leo Wolfer as head of the Landesheilanstalt and Dr. Heinrich Wolfer as head of the hereditary biology department of the Landesheilanstalt (now Christian Doppler Clinic).
