(1885 - 1948)

Czech journalist and writer who was converted to communism by the useless bloodbath of WWI. Worked in journalism after the war in Austria and Germany. After the ascension to power of the Nazis he was arrested and then expelled from the country (luckily for him he was a Czechoslovak citizen!). Traveled around the world to raise awareness of the barbarity of the Nazis, he lived in Australia, France, Spain, and amerika. After WWII he returned to Prague and worked as a journalist for two years before his untimely death.
