Brunngraber, Rudolf

Entry updated 18 November 2019. Tagged: Author.

(1901-1960) German industrial designer and author, active for many years. In his sf novel Radium: Roman eines Elements (1936; trans Eden and Cedar Paul 1937), a near-contemporary corner on the radium market (see Elements) causes Near Future troubles in a hospital using it as a Medicine to cure cancer. He also wrote the script for the film 1 April 2000 (1952), which speculates melodramatically on the day – that is, 1 April 2000 – when Austria may be given full independence. [JC]
