Heinrich Mann (March 27, 1871 - March 12, 1950) wrote German novels with social themes whose attacks on the authoritarian and increasingly militaristic nature of post-Weimar German society led to his exile in 1933.

He was born in Lübeck and was the elder brother of Thomas Mann.

Together with Albert Einstein, Mann was a signatory to a letter to the International League of Human Rights condemning the murder of Croatian scholar Dr Milan Sufflay on February 18, 1931.

He died in Santa Monica, California.
