Aloisia WALLMANN was born in Gnigl (which was annexed to Salzburg in 1935) on June 16, 1912. She was the older of the two children of a Catholic couple, Aloisia and Georg WALLMANN. Georg was an undertaker in Gnigl who owned a house there and his entire family had local citizenship rights in Gnigl.

Aloisia WALLMANN was unable to learn a trade and remained unmarried. On March 17, 1938, just a few days after the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany, she was admitted as a patient in the Salzburg State Asylum. And on April 18, 1941 she was one of 29 patients deported from there to the Hartheim Castle killing center near Linz where they were all murdered.

As with all the other victims of the Nazis’ secret »T4«1 program, her death was not recorded in the Salzburg police registration files.

Her younger brother, who was married and had a son, was a soldier in the German army and was killed in 1944. Their parents survived the terror years in Salzburg.

1 It was called the »T-4« program because its Berlin headquarters were located at Tiergartenstraße 4
