Josef Ohrwalder

Father Joseph Ohrwalder (6 March 1856 Lana/South Tyrol - 8 August 1913 Omdurman/Sudan) was a Roman Catholic priest, who was taken captive by the Mahdists in Sudan while working as a missionary there and escaped ten years later. The German manuscript of his travails was rendered into English by Francis Reginald Wingate from a sketchy translation.
