Admin/Biographical History Julius Bruckner was born June 28, 1908 in Vienna, Austria. After the Third Reich entered Austria in 1938, Julius lost his job as a printer. He was imprisoned shortly after, and remained detained for about a month. In December 1938, Julius was able to flee to a refugee camp in Holland. Once in Amsterdam, Julius sent for his fiancée, Klara (nèe Bernhaut), who had previously fled to London. Klara was also born in Vienna, having left Austria in the fall of 1938. After reuniting in Amsterdam, the couple gained passage to Israel. They lived in Tel Aviv until 1948. Julius and Klara Bruckner settled in Richmond in 1952 where they raised two sons. Klara passed away on April 7, 2010, and Julius passed away on October 19, 2010.
