The purpose of this informational portal is to introduce English-speaking researchers, journalists (including incoming Feuchtwanger Fellows at Villa Aurora · Thomas Mann House), students and general readers to the work of Lion Feuchtwanger. Each post contains information in English about a recent conference, book, article, or other item of interest, as well as links to further reading and video content. There is particular emphasis on the novels which thematize the rise of National Socialism, namely Success, The Oppermanns and Paris Gazette. The portal opens up avenues of inquiry for English speakers interested in the 1918-1945 period of German literature and social history. The posts on the first page encompass the arguably most significant Lion Feuchtwanger works from the 1918-1945 period; the posts on the second page essentially cover biographical background. The portal is written and operated by Dr. Adrian Feuchtwanger (certified language professional and copywriter, International Feuchtwanger Society Executive Committee member, and a great-nephew of Lion Feuchtwanger; for bio, see www.feuchtwanger.com). It is for non-profit educational purposes only.
