14.11.1946: Hermann Hesse wins Nobel Prize
Hermann Hesse received the Nobel Prize for Literature "for his inspired writings which, while growing in boldness and penetration, exemplify the classical humanitarian ideals and high qualities of style”. Key themes in his works are painful personal issues and inner conflicts. All his works represented a personal confession of his conflict-filled life. He came under criticism during the First World War for his clearly pacifist attitude, and the National Socialists declared him a "National Traitor".
