Franz Werfel (1890–1945)

Trivia:

During his flight from the Nazis, he and his wife stopped at Lourdes, the French city in which Bernadette Soubirous lived and reportedly saw the Virgin Mary. He vowed to write a book about her if he and his wife escaped safely. The result was the novel, "The Song of Bernadette", which became an international success and a film classic.
