Der österreichische Schriftsteller Stefan Zweig kam aus großbürgerlich-jüdischer Familie. Er studierte in Wien und Berlin Phlilosophie, Germanistik und Romanistik. 1904 promovierte er zum Dr. phil. Nach der Promotion bereiste er Europa, Amerika, Afrika und Indien. Während des 1. Weltkriegs war er zuerst propagandistisch im Wiener Kriegsarchiv, dann in offiziösen Missionen in der Schweiz tätig. Er engagierte sich zusammen mit R. Rolland für den Frieden. Nach Kriegsende lebte er bis 1933 mit seiner Frau Friderike in Salzburg. Von ihr löste er sich im Zug einer Übersiedlung nach England, 1941 zog er weiter nach Brasilien, nach Petropolis im Bundesstaat Rio de Janeiro. Unter Depression leidend, nahm er sich dort gemeinsam mit seiner zweiten Frau Lotte das Leben.
