|Heinz Fischer honoured for his merits in support of the Naturefriends Movement|
A few days ago, Dr. Heinz Fischer, President of Austria and Naturefriend, was presented with the Alois Rohrauer Commemorative Pin by NFI President Manfred Pils, in appreciation of services rendered to the Naturefriends movement.
Heinz Fischer has been Honorary President of Naturefriends Austria since 2004. Before that he had been Chairman of Naturefriends Austria for 33 years – a position which permitted him to combine his political and social engagement with his hobby of mountaineering. His era was marked by historic breakthroughs such as the Forestry Act 1975, in which the full and free right of way was laid down, the successful fight against the Dorfertal power station and the foundation of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
On the occasion of the Alois Rohrauer Commemorative Pin awarding ceremony, Bruno Klaus Lampasiak, former Vice-President of Naturefriends International, presented a publication at the Vienna Hofburg, which has recently appeared in print under the title Naturfreund sein heißt Mensch sein: Naturfreunde im Widerstand 1933 bis 1945.
Bruno Klaus Lampasiak: Naturfreund sein heißt Mensch sein. Naturfreunde im Widerstand 1933 bis 1945. Naturfreunde-Verlag Freizeit und Wandern GmbH Berlin, 2013.
