"It's a great honor to our father and our family, and a statement also on the part of the Austrian officers.

It brings that whole episode to an end," said Johannes von Trapp, son of the captain. Soldiers stood at attention yesterday as Chaplain Sigfried Lochner of the Theresianum gave the Mass in German to about 300 people, including members of the Trapp family, beside the family gravesite.

The fact that I am here is an appreciation of the difficult destiny of the Trapp family." The political significance of the event included Austria's coming to terms with a portion of its past that had been spoken in whispers for half a century.
