Sepp Kerschbaumer from Frangart, Eppan

*1913 †1964

Sepp Kerschbaumer was the founder of the BAS and rightly regarded as its first “chief.” Like 150 other BAS activists, he was arrested after the “Night of Flames” and tortured during his imprisonment. In 1964, Kerschbaumer was sentenced in Milan to more than 15 years of imprisonment. He died in prison in Verona due to a heart attack.
