Although his family wasn't wealthy he was able to study German letters at the university in Berlin as a guest student. In 1905 he founded the theatre magazine "Die Schaubühne" that was very influential in its time. In 1913 it was renamed to "Wochenzeitschrift für Politik, Kunst und Wirtschaft" and after the revolution of November 1918 it became "Die Weltbühne", a leading pacifistic paper during the Weimar republic. Kurt Tucholsky was one of his main collaborators. After accusations against the Reichswehr he was prosecuted for treason shortly before he died in 1926.
