von Trapp family

von Trapp family – The Trapp Family was a singing ensemble created by the family of Georg von Trapp, a former Austrian naval commander. During the interwar period, the family rose to prominence in their native Austria as singers.

When Hitler took power in Austria in 1938, the von Trapps decided to conserve their spiritual treasure rather than their material wealth and moved to the United States from their huge estate outside of Salzburg.
