Wedekind, Frank, 1864-1918Alternative names
Wedekind moved to Munich in 1889 and apparently lived there until his death, in 1918. According to Werfel's biographer Peter Stephan Jungk, Werfel encountered Wedekind in social settings in Leipzig during the period when Werfel was living there and working as an editor at Kurt Wolff Verlag, in 1913 and 1914, prior to being called up for military service upon the outbreak of World War I. Werfel gave numerous public readings during that period, in a variety of cities.
