While walking along the tombs at the Austro-Hungarian naval cemetery in Pula I came across the graves of Hedwig and August Trapp. They were the parents of Baron von Trapp who was played by Christopher Plummer in the movie ‘Sound of Music’.
On a research tour about my father’s life I also visited the cemetery of the Austro-Hungarian navy in Pula. The natural harbour of this city served as Austria’s main naval base until 1918.
