About Paul Alverdes

  • Paul Alverdes (6 May 1897, Strasbourg - 28 February 1979, Munich) was a German novelist and poet. The son of an officer and member of the German Youth Movement, he volunteered for duty in World War I and received a severe injury to the throat.
  • After 1922 he was a freelance author in Munich, and from 1934 to 1944, along with Karl Benno von Mechow, he edited and published the journal Das innere Reich.
  • Alverdes's work was influenced by the youth movement and by the World War I front experience, whose purifying and "transforming" power he praised.
  • Nonetheless, he was only moderately popular with National Socialists because he lacked an "activist-dynamic attitude".
  • After 1945 he mainly wrote stories for children.
