German poet and author, married from 1904 to the German translator and writer Hedda Eulenberg.
Herbert Eulenberg was the publisher of many books, for which he wrote the introductions. In the 1920s, he was one of the most performed playwrights on German stages. His essays on various subjects and topics on literature, theatre, music, and fine arts were published in numerous newspapers and magazines throughout Germany and Austria.
In 1919 Eulenberg, together with painters Arthur Kaufmann and Adolf Uzarski, founded the modern union of artists, “Das Junge Rheinland” in Düsseldorf.
During Nazi Germany, Eulenberg’s dramas were banned, his books were no longer printed or sold. Yet, he stood firm against the threats of party members, who continuously denounced the pacifist and humanist as a "red-haired Jew."
During World War II, he published short articles under various pseudonyms and wrote a multitude of dramas which sharply attacked and disputed the political situation of the time.
Eulenberg died in Düsseldorf-Kaiserswerth on 4 September 1949 of serious injuries after an accident.
