Short biography
Ludvík Aškenazy was born to a Jewish family in Český Těšín, Czechoslovakia.

He studied Slavonic languages and history in Lvov, then part of Poland.

At the outbreak of World War II, he was evacuated to Kazakhstan, where he taught history at a high school before serving as a soldier in the Czech unit of the Soviet Army. After the war, he worked as a reporter and foreign political commentator for Czechoslovak Radio, and later became a freelance writer.

He traveled for his work to Germany, Poland, Italy, India, Japan and the USA. After the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, he went into exile with his wife, Leonie Mann, daughter of writer Heinrich Mann, and their two sons, settling first in Munich. There he wrote about 25 radio plays in German. He also wrote poetry, novels, and fairy tales as well as screenplays.
