Wolfgang Pfaundler

Wolfgang fought as a partisan in the Tyrol against the Hitler regime, where he was the initiator and leader of the resistance group in the Ítztal together with Hubert Sauerwein. This was created in 1941 and sat down in 1942 from about 50 people together. In the mountains, the partisans were able to successfully hide from the Nazis until the end of the war and took power in the Ítztal in May 1945, which they then handed over without a fight to the invading Americans.

In Italy he was sentenced in absentia to twenty years and eleven months imprisonment, after which he could not pass the Italian border for decades, otherwise he would have been arrested. Only in January 1998, the Italian President Oscar Luigi Scalfaro informed the Austrian Federal President Thomas Klestil that he had pardoned four former South Tyrol activists, namely Heinrich Klier, Peter Matern, Wolfgang Pfaundler and Gerhard Pfeffer.
