In 1939, a small group of young Austrian refugees, together with Dr Karl König, formed a community to help children with special needs. From this small beginning the Camphill Movement developed. – This is the story of Camphill’s eleven intrepid founders. Alix Roth was a photographer in Vienna; Anke Weihs a dancer; Thomas Weihs had studied medicine in Vienna and Basel; Carlo Pietzner was an artist in Vienna; and Peter Roth began medical studies and later became a priest. – This book documents how these pioneers and other diverse talents came together to form a network that today includes more than a hundred homes, schools, and villages. – Includes more than 100 photographs
