Zuckmayer

3241 T-3. Discovered 1977 Oct. 16 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named for Jewish playwright Carl Zuckmayer (18961977). He wrote many comedies, his most famous play being Der Hauptmann von Kopenick. As a young soldier he took part in World War I. His plays were later banned in Germany, so he emigrated to Austria and in 1938 moved via Switzerland to the U.S. During 1940-1946 he earned his living on a farm. There he wrote the much-discussed drama Des Teufels General. Although he returned to Germany in 1947, he lived in Switzerland from 1958 onward. (M 34345)
