Marko M.Feingold passed on September 19th 2019 in Salzburg. He was president of the Jewish Community of Salzburg until spring 2019 and supervised the Salzburg Synagogue. He was born May 28th, 1913 and reached the age of 106 years. He was the oldest Holocaust survivor in Austria.
When Marko Feingold visited us in December 2017 he was already 104 years old. He traveled from Salzburg to Vienna by train. Due to the fact that he had no grandchildren he was leading the dialogue in front of our cameras with the charming Miriam Brownstone.
Marko Feingold was one of the most active and most famous contemporary witnesses who survived the Holocaust and one the most important fighters against Antisemitism in Austria. He is already missing.
Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
