Johannes Hesse Jr.
Hesse was a close friend of Theodor Heuss and Romain Rolland. The two men were some of the few friends who remained publically close to Hesse during World War I, when Hesse was labelled as "anti-war" and unpatriotic.
In 1933, Hesse aided Bertolt Brecht and Thomas Mann in their escape and self-imposed exile from Nazi Germany.
Hesse was a patient of one of Carl Jung's students, and was so impressed by the methods used, he began to study psychoanalysis himself, and became a friend of Jung's.
Though his second marriage to ex-wife Ruth was brief, through that marriage Hesse was the uncle-in-law of Meret Oppenheim.
