Dr. Hugo Daffner had studied music and later medicine and earned a doctorate in both subjects. From 1933 onwards, he worked exclusively as a composer. The Nazis disliked his compositions as much as his lifestyle. For those reasons they sent him to Dachau concentration camp in 1935, where he died in 1936 under unexplained circumstances.
