A native of Vienna, Zweig lived in Salzburg following World War I. He married his first wife, Friderike Zweig (née Burger), in 1920, and they divorced in 1938. He married Charlotte ("Lotte") Elisabeth Altmann in 1939. Zweig emigrated to England some time before 1938 and became a British citizen in 1940. In that same year he traveled to the U.S. and then on to South America, settling in Brazil. In 1941 he visited the U.S. again. He and his second wife committed suicide in Brazil, in Feb. 1942. Zweig had known Franz Werfel since at least 1917, when they served together in the Military Press Bureau in Vienna during World War I. He was a good friend of both Franz and Alma Mahler.
