Thomas Mann,

The writer Thomas Mann was born 1875 in Lübeck, Germany, and died 1955 in Zurich. He authored numerous essays, short stories, and novels, among them Doctor Faustus (1947), The Magic Mountain (1924), and Buddenbrooks (1901), for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929. As an outspoken opponent of Nazism, Mann fled after Hitler came to power, settled in the U.S., and returned to Europe not before 1952.
