Richard Berczeller (1902-1994) was an Austrian physician and author, working as a doctor in the 1920's and 1930's while in Europe. He was arrested by the Gestapo in 1938 and was held as a political prisoner, only released when he agreed he would leave the German Reich. Upon his arrival to America, Berczeller continued as a doctor, working as a physician for lower income families. He also began writing autobiographical pieces about his time in Germany and his life, including his books Displaced Doctor, Time Was, and A Trip Into the Blue and Other Stories. Many of his short stories were published in The New Yorker. He also had a one-time acting role in a 1922 Sodom und Gomorrha film. Light surface creases, with heavier crease on bottom right. Normal mailing folds. Corners slightly worn. Ink slightly haloed, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
