History of the Trapp family in Salzburg

Maria von Kutschera, born in Vienna, was sent as governess to the widowed Baron Georg Ritter von Trapp to look after his seven children.

The two fall in love and get married. At the beginning of the 1930s Maria founded a family choir with which she performed and won a music competition in Salzburg. Then Baron von Trapp is forced to join the German Navy.

But he refuses and flees to Switzerland with his family. From there the Trapp family emigrated to the USA and traveled all over America as the "Trapp Family Singers". The Sound of Music is based on a true story.
