Kurt Tucholsky

 

Kurt Tucholsky (1890–1935) was a German-Jewish writer, journalist and one of the most influential satirists of his time. He wrote under multiple pseudonyms for a variety of magazines and newspapers, most notably die Weltbühne. He tirelessly and mercilessly satirised those he considered to be the enemies of democracy and human rights, but grew increasingly pessimistic about the future of his country.

He emigrated to Paris in 1924, and travelled widely before eventually settling in Sweden in 1930.

In 1933 the Nazis revoked his German citizenship and burned his books.
