Geography

Strasshof an der Nordbahn lies in Marchfeld in Lower Austria. About 21.08 percent of the municipality is forested.

History

Strasshof had about 50 inhabitants in 1900, and a railroad yard functioned from 1908 to 1959.[1]. In 1944, about 75% of 21,000 Hungarian Jews deported from a concentration camp at Strasshof survived due to an agreement between the Aid and Rescue Committee of Budapest and Adolf Eichmann.[2]. On 2 December 1944 the marshalling yard in "Straszhof" was the target of an Allied bombing.

On 23 August 2006, kidnapped teenager Natascha Kampusch escaped after nearly 8½ years imprisonment in a cellar of a Strasshof house. The presumed kidnapper Wolfgang Priklopil committed suicide on the evening of the same day.
