Otto Neururer

A humble man

Otto Neururer, born on 25 March 1882 in the village of Piller in the Pitztal valley, was the parish priest in Götzens from 1932 until 1938. His contemporaries described him as a humble man who avoided political confrontation but who, with critical foresight, recognised the anti-clerical ideology of the Nazi regime.

In 1938, when a young woman from his parish wanted to marry a divorced Nazi stormtrooper, Neururer, as a responsible pastor, advised her against it. The rejected man took revenge on the priest by reporting him to the Gestapo. Neururer was arrested and taken to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he continued fulfilling his priestly duties despite being forbidden from doing so. This gave many prisoners solace, help and strength. He placed his own fate in God’s hands and his pastoral activities landed him in the dreaded “bunker”, where he was executed on 30 May 1940. The urn containing his ashes was sent to Götzens in late June of 1940. The funeral of the popular priest turned into a powerful demonstration of faith and Neururer was revered as a martyr from then on.

In 2015, a memorial designed by Manuel Schmid was erected in front of the church to mark the 75th anniversary of Otto Neururer’s death.
