German author and pacifist.
She became active in pacifist causes during World War I and this caused her political difficulties from then on. Having both French and German sympathies, Annette Kolb strove for the reconciliation of the two nations. She spent the 1914-18 War in Switzerland, returned to Germany after it, but emigrated to Paris in 1933.
In 1941 she took refuge in the USA, coming back to Germany in 1945 and living by turns in Paris. Her works were banned during the Third Reich. She wrote novels on high society and in later life wrote nonfiction about musicians. In 1955 she won the Goethe Prize. Her intelligence, wit, and generosity of heart manifest themselves in her essays.
She died 3 December 1967 in Munich, at the age of 97.
