Hide Profile

The best-selling novelist, Lion Feuchtwanger, fled Germany in 1933 with the rise of the National Socialists. Living first in exile in France (1933-1940), Feuchtwanger and his wife, Marta, ultimately emigrated to the United States in 1940, coming to Los Angeles in 1941. Lion Feuchtwanger is perhaps best known for his historical novel, Jud Süss (1925; Jew Suess), and his novel Erfolg (1930; Success), the first novel that predicts the reign of terror of National Socialism. Lion Feuchtwanger lived in Pacific Palisades (CA) until his death in 1958.

The conductor Ernst Römer was an acquaintance of Feuchtwanger's who asked Feuchtwanger to vouch for him in his attempt to correspond with Alma Mahler; Kurt Rosenfeld sought from Werfel endorsement of a letter to be presented at the German American Emergency Conference in 1942 and which was signed by Feuchtwanger, among others; Marta Feuchtwanger was Lion Feuchtwanger's wife.

Author Lion Feuchtwanger was born in Munich, and educated in Berlin and Munich. Eschewing the family margarine business for a life in literature, he accepted a job as drama critic for Die Schaubuehne. He began writing plays, and became known for addressing social issues in his works. Many of his novels were critical of the Nazi Party, who revoked his citizenship; he was compelled to flee Germany for France, and, ultimately, the United States, where he wrote mainly entertaining and well-researched historical novels. His early work shows an important social consciousness, and his later work tries to impart his view of human nature.
