Zweig was also the librettist for several of Richard Strauss's operas, after the suicide of Hugo von Hoffmanstahl, Strauss's longtime writing partner. Zweig penned several of Strauss's later works, but had to publicly give others credit for his work because the Nazis wouldn't tolerate a celebrated Jewish poet. What a sad chapter in human history.
