German prominent novelist whose work faithfully reflected the zeitgeist of the great depression as it affected the German peasants.

He worked as a farm supervisor until he was imprisoned for having swindled the owners.

The product of a disastrous adolescence, he grew into an unstable adult, a morphine addict. As his fame grew for freelance writings and novels, he was tolerated by the Nazis.

On 5 February 1947, Fallada died of from a weakened heart from years of addiction to morphine, alcohol and other drugs in Berlin. A few weeks later his book "Jeder stirbt für sich allein" was published. It is based on the true story of a working class husband and wife who, acting alone, became part of the German Resistance. They were eventually discovered, denounced, arrested, tried and executed. Fallada's book was one of the first anti-Nazi novels to be published by a German after World War II.

On 15 February 2016 the film Alone in Berlin had its première in Berlin.
