Notburga TIEFGRABER, née Zillner, was born in Elsbethen (just south of Salzburg) in 1885. She was married to a fellow Jehovah’s Witness Johann Tiefgraber and they had three children, Johann, Notburga and Maria.
The children were born when the family had lived in the village of Anif, but after 1932 they all lived at 10 Aigner Strasse, Salzburg-Parsch (then the site of the Mayr-Melnhof marble works and now of the tax office).
On November 15, 1939 the couple was arrested for their religion and refusal to take part in any military service.
The wife was deported to Ravensbrueck concentration camp on March 15, 1940, and she was killed there on March 22, 1944.
The husband was imprisoned in the Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps until September 20, 1940, when he was released and was able to return to his children in Salzburg.
