On April 10, 1938, “only 5 out of 3,600 voted against Hitler in the Catholic Austrian town of Braunau, his birthplace, and twenty miles to the south, in the small village of St. Radegund, only one man voted against him. This was Franz J├Ągerst├Ątter, a Catholic peasant, the father of a young family.”
