German illustrator and ethnologist, who chose as an artist to be known as Erich Chiram Brauer. He often signed his art work "Chiram".

As a young man, his first interest was in graphics, and later he added studies in ethnology.

In Germany, Brauer belonged to a Jewish youth movement, youth primarily drawn from assimilated Jewish families who had taken an interest in Zionism, and which called themselves Jung Juda (Young Judea). One of the fellow members of this group whom he had befriended was Gershom Scholem. During the years of the First World War, 1915–1916, the two co-edited and published a lithographic magazine entitled, Die Blauweisse Brille ("Glasses in Blue and White")

Brauer is the author of two major books, one of which treating on the Jews of Yemen (Ethnologie der jemenitischen Juden), and the other on the Jews of Kurdistan, a book later translated into English and Turkish.

Brauer suffered from a rare illness (Scheuermann's disease) and died on 9 May 1942 at the age of 46 in Petah Tikvah.
