About us


ALPINE PEACE CROSSING – Charity for refugee support (APC) is a civic, independent and non-profit social and peace initiative, founded by Ernst Loeschner in 2007 under the patronage of the State Presidents of Austria and Italy at that time, Heinz Fischer and Giorgio Napolitano. It is based on a long forgotten Jewish exodus over the Austrian Alps near Krimml (Salzburg) in 1947 and is dedicated to refugees worldwide.

Details on the founding of APC can be found in the Genesis of APC.
