About the International Feuchtwanger Society

On 11 July 2001 scholars and journalists from the US and Europe came together in Pacific Palisades (Los Angeles) to found the International Feuchtwanger Society. The Society aims to increase awareness of the life and works of Lion and Marta Feuchtwanger and other German émigrés who settled in Southern California during and after the Nazi period. Lion Feuchtwanger was a best-selling author in the US and pre-war Europe who became an important cultural link between the two continents.

The Society issues a regular Newsletter and holds a series of conferences alternating between the US and Europe. The first conference, scheduled for spring 2003, was co-sponsored by the Feuchtwanger Memorial Library of the University of Southern California. It took place at the Villa Aurora, the Feuchtwanger's former home in Pacific Palisades. Subsequent conferences took place in Sanary-sur-Mer, France (2005), Los Angeles (2007), and Vienna (2009).



All International Feuchtwanger Society members receive the IFS newsletter from the International Feuchtwanger Society as a benefit of membership and are invited to participate in the society's symposia. The society welcomes submissions to the newsletter in English, German, French, Russian, or Italian.

Regular membership in the IFS is $30/year. Student and Emeritus memberships are $20/year, and Life memberships are $300.
