Adolf STILLER, born on November 19, 1888 in Vienna and baptized Catholic, was a carpenter by trade.
He had lived in the then independent municipality of Maxglan since 1913 and married Anna Wörndl, born in Maxglan, in 1915. The couple had ten children.

The family, entitled to reside in the municipality of Maxglan (since 1935 a district of Salzburg) according to Austrian law, lived in the house at Stieglstraße 3.

Adolf STILLER was admitted to the Salzburg State Sanatorium on April 23, 1938, thus under the Nazi regime, and was incapacitated by court order on August 19, 1938.

The handwritten note »Pol. Liste«1 in the police register indicates that he was considered an opponent of the Nazi regime. He was among the 82 fosterlings deported to Hartheim and murdered on April 17, 1941.

As with all victims of the National Socialist secret action »T4«1, the death of the 52-year-old man is not recorded in the police register of the city of Salzburg.

His wife and ten children survived the terror years in Salzburg.

1 »Pol. Liste« (Police List): a list of opponents of the regime kept by the police (Gestapo).

2 It was called the »T4« program because its Berlin headquarters were located at Tiergartenstraße 4.
Primarily responsible for the murderous program in Salzburg were: Dr. Friedrich Rainer as Governor, Dr. Oskar Hausner as leader of the regional health office, Dr. Leo Wolfer as director of the State Asylum (now called the Christian-Doppler-Clinic), and Dr. Heinrich Wolfer as head of the hereditary disease section of the State Asylum.
