Kurt Tucholsky was a German journalist and writer who lived from 1890 until 1935. Kaspar Hauser, Peter Panter, Theobald Tiger, and Ignaz Wrobel were some of his pen names. Tucholsky was a prominent publicist during the Weimar Republic. He established himself as a social critic in the style of Heinrich Heine as a politically engaged journalist and for a while co-editor of the monthly Die Weltbühne. He was a humorist, cabaret writer, songwriter, author, lyricist, and critic all at the same time (literature, film, music).
He identified as a left-wing democrat, socialist, pacifist, and anti-militarist, and cautioned against the rise of the political right, particularly in politics, the military, and the judiciary, as well as the menace of National Socialism.
