Angela Türtscher and the Schenkers

Heinrich and Jeanette Schenker, who lodged with the Türtscher family at the Alpenhaus Fluchthorn during their summer vacations in Galtür in 1921‒24, established a friendship with her. The three kept in contact outside the summer period, during Heinrich's teaching season. His diaries give evidence of correspondence with her, none of which is known to survive.
