Description

The Camphill Movement had its beginnings in 1939, with a small group of young Austrian refugees led by Karl König. This book is a definitive reference to over one hundred of the people who subsequently joined the movement between the 1940s and early 1970s. They helped to make Camphill the large and influential network it is today, working in a unique way with children and adults with special needs.

Gathered together here are 129 short biographies and photographs spanning thirty years. Each tells a fascinating individual story, and together they form a remarkable whole, documenting the history of Camphill in the most appropriate way: through its people.
