In German. Austrian poet, priest, and WWII resistance fighter. Auslieferung durch das Volksliturgische Apostolat, Klosterneuburg bei Wien. Nice Firm Clean copy ! Light general wear. 112 pages. Roman Karl Scholz (1912-1944) was an Augustinian priest in Klosterneuburg near Vienna, and resistance fighter against the Third Reich. Scholz had joined the Nazi Party in his youth, being in favor of the unification of the Germanic peoples. He became a poet, and self-published Ferne Feine Dinge: Gedichte in 1934. The book was sold at the Augustinian Abbey of Klosterneuburg, and was the only work published during his lifetime. Scholz was a youth pastor, and was ordained in 1936, later becoming a professor of Theology and Christian Philosophy. In 1936 Scholz realized the evils of the Nazi party, after visiting the Roman Empire Party Congress in Nuremberg. In September 1938 he founded the first resistance group in Austria, initially the 'German Freedom Movement,' later renamed the 'Austrian Freedom Movement.' It eventually grew to 400 secret members. The Movement developed internal training courses, disseminated banned literature, and performed sabotage against the Nazis. Conditions worsened in Austria. On November 9th 1938 in Vienna alone 42 synagogues and prayer houses were set on fire, 30 people were murdered, and thousands were deported to concentration camps. The Holocaust had begun. The Movement was infiltrated, and the Gestapo arrested Scholz in July 1940 for high treason. He was jailed in the Gestapo headquarters in the Hotel Metropol. It took almost four years to face trial. During this time he was interrogated repeatedly and was transferred from prison to prison. Scholz and 10 others were sentenced to death, and he was executed by the guillotine. His last words were: 'For Christ and Austria!'
