Biography's Source:

Stefan Heym was born in Germany and emigrated to America during the Nazi era in the 1930s. He served in the U.S. forces in Europe with distinction, and subsequently wrote a best-selling novel of American soldiers in Europe called The Crusaders. During the Korean War, Heym became disenchanted with the American way of life and returned to Germany, settling in East Berlin. He soon established himself as prominent author in his own country, though he continued to write in English. In 1994, he became the oldest member elected to the German parliament. Today, his articles are published in the German press on a regular basis and his books continue to garner international acclaim.
