Author: Melchior Vischer

Born in Teplitz-Schönau (modern Teplice), in the former Sudeten region of Northwestern Bohemia, Melchior Vischer (1895-1975) belonged to the same cultural milieu as Franz Kafka & Robert Musil.

An obscure figure during the last thirty years of his life, Vischer died in Berlin in 1975.
