Rolf Gruber
Rolf Gruber (1921-) was an Austrian Nazi Party member at the time of the Anschluss in 1938.


Rolf Gruber was born in Salzburg, Austria in 1921, and he worked as a delivery boy during his youth. Gruber had a flirtatious friendship with the daughter of Captain Georg von Trapp, but he later put this aside when he joined the Nazi Party. Gruber believed that the people of Austria were truly Germans, and he was seduced by the ideas of German nationalism. He was the one to send a telegraph to Von Trapp ordering him to report to the German naval station at Bremerhaven to serve in the new Kriegsmarine, and he attempted to prevent Von Trapp and his family from fleeing to Switzerland after the Anschluss, but the Nazis' cars were uanble to start in pursuit due to the sympathetic Catholic nuns' removal of car parts to assist the family in fleeing.
