Elvira POSCH was born in Lienz, East Tyrol, in 1912. She was a teacher and the Catholic daughter of a confectioner. She was admitted to the Salzburg Provincial Sanitarium on July 6, 1939, and on May 21, 1941 she was sent from there to the extermination center at Schloss Hartheim near Linz (in Upper Austria) where she was murdered.

Elvira’s parents, Margarethe und Albert POSCH, owned 26 Linzer Gasse, which was the location of their Café and pastry shop as well as their home.

Her mother died in 1957, her father in 1963.
