Biography

Photography around 1930

Ernst Lothar ([ˈloːtar]; 25 October 1890 – 30 October 1974) was a Moravian-Austrian writer, theatre director/manager and producer.

He was born Ernst Lothar Müller, and as Müller is a very common German surname, he dropped it. His brother, Hans Müller-Einigen, by contrast, added a surname.

Biography

Lothar was born in Brünn, Austria-Hungary (now Brno in the Czech Republic) and died in Vienna. Amongst his novels was The Angel with the Trumpet and The Prisoner. In 1943 he published Beneath Another Sun (Doubleday, Doran & Co., Inc., Garden City, N.Y.). It was evidently written in exile as the foreword is signed Colorado Springs, Summer, 1942.

He was married to the Austrian actress Adrienne Gessner. They both fled into exile following the 1938 Anschluss.

Stefan Zweig, in The World of Yesterday, attributes the following to Lothar: "Emigration is for a young man with no memories."
