Klaus Mann

Klaus Mann, like his father Thomas, was a socially engaged writer. In 1925, he published his first novel: Der fromme Tanz. Das Abenteuerbuch einer Jugend. He fled the Nazis, first to Amsterdam, later to the United States, and began the antifascist journal Die Sammlung. As a writer and actor, he frequently collaborated with his sister Erika. Among his works are Mephisto (1936) and the autobiographical The Turning Point (1942).
