I became interested in Zweig years ago when I was researching my own Central European family and cultural history. Because Zweig recognized his vocation early and did not have to earn his living, he was able to write about whatever drew his interest —- art, love, class, psychology, religion, history, power, adventure, and the writing process itself.
He often spent years revising his work before releasing it for publication, and he supervised the process carefully in a way contemporary authors can only dream about — choosing publishers, paper stock, illustrations, and titles. Also a much-envied one. From the Great War to Switzerland. From the symbolic firing-squad across the Channel. From Blitzed London to the safety of provincial Bath. He even fled Rio for a Brazilian mountain resort. I want insight into his early life, his family dynamics, and the way he coped with two world wars, in addition, I want some speculation about why he decided to take his own life in Petropolis, Brazil when it looked like Hitler might indeed conquer the world.
Zweig wrote in his suicide note he left on February 22, Every day I learned to love this country more, and I would not have asked to rebuild my life in any other place after the world of my own language sank and was lost to me and my spiritual homeland, Europe, destroyed itself. I thus prefer to end my life at the right time, upright, as a man for whom cultural work has always been his purest happiness and personal freedom — the most precious of possessions on this earth. I send greetings to all of my friends: May they live to see the dawn after this long night.
When she decided to leave Felix and live alone in Baden, near the Austrian capital, she asked Stefan to come and visit him at times when the girls were awake. Lacking in experience in dealing with children, being the youngest of his family, without small nephews or cousins, Stefan was easy to get on with and Friderike ever-attentive. Free of financial troubles life flowed easily with little of the harshness of everyday life.

They were adolescents when they moved to the mansion on Kapuzinerberg in Salzburg and adapted themselves to the rapid success of their stepfather and the resulting stresses. However, in the diary entries from October the first signs of unpleasantness appear between the writer, now in his fifties, endlessly dissatisfied with his success and concerned about the prevailing political radicalism, and the stepdaughters, by now grown women aged 21 and Friderike in turn was reluctant to impose his will on her daughters.
The cracks in the family atmosphere — up to now apparently harmonious — begin to appear when he reveals that he is thinking of seeking refuge. I suffocate, as does my energy. I need to catch my breath Better that than a marasmus.
She insisted, the case went to court, Friderike interfered using her connections, and in , there she is appearing in the Salzburger Illustrierte in reports with captions in French and English both were tri-lingual. When they did finally separate and sold the magnificent mansion for a trifle, Friderike decided to invest in an inn of writers in Nonntal Hauptstrasse, 49 , a delightful district of Salzburg, and Alix, the older girl, now working at a travel agency, stayed to help. They enjoyed a full house thanks to their contacts in the artistic milieu and with foreign visitors during the Summer Festival.
