Heinrich Mann (March 27, 1871 – March 11, 1950) was a German novelist. He wrote novels concerned with social themes and his satirization of Imperial German society in Der Untertan garnered him praise from the Wermar Republic. He continued to write in this vein until 1930. At that time, he took over President of the fine poetry division of the Prussian Academy of the Arts. His criticism of fascism made it imperative that he flee the country by 1933.
