Lamszus, Wilhelm

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1881-1965) German educator and author, immediately dismissed from his teaching post when the Nazi regime took over, presumably because of his anti-war writings, including Das Menschenschlachthaus: Bilder von kommenden Krieg (1912; trans Oakley Williams as The Human Slaughter-House (Scenes from the War That Is Sure to Come) 1913 UK) with a sympathetic introduction by Alfred Noyes; it comprises a prophetically horrific Near Future vision of World War One from the viewpoint of an impassioned pacifist, who undergoes a profound Last Man vision of the tortured Earth before killing himself.
