Konrad Deubler (1814 – 1884)
The educated farmer from Salzkammergut
He was a very important man who became known far beyond the borders of Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt. He was in contact with many personalities of his time, especially Ludwig Feuerbach. Probably best known is that he was in prison because of his convictions. He was a Republican, a supporter of the democratic idea and the United States.
This did not fit into the social current of the Salzkammergut at that time, so he wrote to personalities of his time where he addressed the difficult circumstances. This often dragged on for decades, as it was noticed that this farmer from the Salzkammergut was well educated. Even today there are many circles, especially from the "Freidenkertum", who refer to Konrad Deubler and regard him as their predecessor.
The Konrad Deubler Memorial in the "Kurpark" of Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt was redesigned by Paul Riedmann, a student of the Sculpture School in Hallstatt, as part of the 2014 World Heritage Festival, and combines the historical memory with the forward-looking thinking that has shaped Konrad Deubler so much.
