In 1938, Hitler's army occupied Austria and ordered all men to enlist in the military. Franz, a farmer, and father of four, refused to fight in Hitler's army, knowing that he would face execution. His neighbors, pastor and even the bishop tried to convince Franz to enlist for the sake of his family. But Franz felt his faith and conscience compelled him to follow the teachings of God and not the decrees of the Third Reich. He was executed in 1943 at the age of 36.
