Hans Eichner: Hans Eichner was born in Vienna in 1921 and, being Jewish, escaped to England after the annexation of Austria by Hitler's Germany. He enrolled at the University of London as an extension student in 1943, got a Ph.D. in 1949 and taught German language and literature at Bedford College in London, Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, and the University of Toronto from 1948-1988. He published books on Thomas Mann and Friedrich Schlegel. His novel Kahn & Englemann was first published in German in 2000 and was reprinted in 2002.
