At the age of 106, Marko Feilgold was the salvation of 100,000 Jews

20 September 2019, 13:19

(Updated at 13.32) - Marko Feingold died in Salzburg at the age of 106 years. He had survived four Nazi extermination camps and in the immediate post-war period he accompanied 100,000 Jews to Palestine from Austria to Italy. Even as a centenary he went to schools to talk about the Nazi-Fascist madness.

Marko Feingold was born on 28 May 2013 in what was then Austria Hungary - now part of modern Slovakia - and grew up in the Leopoldstadt district of Vienna. After training in business, he found a job in Vienna but after being unemployed he traveled with his brother Ernst to Italy.

In 1938 he was arrested in Vienna during a brief visit. In 1939 he was again arrested and deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp, before being transferred to Neuengamme, Dachau and finally Buchenwald in 1941, where he remained until his release in 1945.

Between 1945 and 1948 he had helped the Jewish survivors who lived in the Salzburg refugee camps. With the organization of Jewish refugees Berihah, he organized the emigration of Jews from Central and Eastern Europe to Palestine, saving just 100,000, accompanying them to the Brenner Pass until 1947 and then to the Peak Fork until the birth of Israel.
