This is the story of a remarkable life, told in Konig s own words. Born in 1902, Karl Konig grew up in Vienna. He studied medicine, and during that time encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner. Soon after graduating, Konig worked with Ita Wegman in Switzerland, where he met his wife Tilla.In Germany, Karl Konig founded Pilgrimshain, a home for children with special needs. However, following the annexation of Austria by the Nazis, he and many young people around him moved to Great Britain as refugees. In 1939, the ideal of working together as a community was put into practice with the founding of Camphill. Konig became the driving force that led to the expansion of the Camphill movement throughout the British Isles, into Europe, South Africa, and North America. He died in 1966."
