Alfred Neumann was an author and screenwriter, excelling primarily in historic novels. He was a recipient of the Kleist Prize in 1926, and although one of his novels (“Der Patriot”) had been turned into a successful German movie, his work was banned in Nazi Germany, and in 1933 he fled to Fiesole, then Nice, and eventually to Los Angeles in 1941, where he continued his screenwriting career. Alfred Neumann died in Lugano, Switzerland in 1952.
Emil Stumpp was born in Neckarzimmern in 1885. He studied briefly in Karlsruhe, but was largely self-taught. He was active as a painter and lithographer in Königsberg. In 1941 he died while being held as a political prisoner in Stuhm (now Sztum, Poland).
