Georg Friedrich Alexan and Georg Wolfgang Hallgarten founded the Editions Meteore in Paris in 1935. The publishing company was a successor to the Editions Bernard Rosner. They only published one book - Im Schützengraben der Heimat: Geschichte einer Generation, written by Alexan in 1937.

Alexan had fled to Paris from Germany in 1933. He immigrated to the United States in 1939 where he founded a bookstore in New York that served as a meeting place for the émigré population. Active in communist circles, Alexan returned to Germany in 1949, living in East Berlin.
