The Builders of Camphill

Lives and Destinies of the Founders

by Contributors Various


In 1939, a small group of young Austrian refugees, together with Dr Karl K�nig, formed a community to help children with special needs. From this small beginning developed the Camphill Movement. This is the story of Camphill's eleven intrepid founders. Alix Roth had worked as a photographer in Vienna; Anke Weihs was 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 and other diverse talents came together to form a network which now numbers over 100 homes, schools and villages.
