    Lisa Tetzner (born in Zittau, Saxony on November 10, 1894; died July 2, 1963 in Carona, Switzerland) was a German-born Swiss children's writer known for her work with fairy-tales. In 1924 she married Kurt Held, a Jewish Communist. They fled to Switzerland to escape the Nazis and in 1948 became a Swiss citizen. Her book, Die schwarzen BrĂ¼der was published in 1941. The Swiss censored her work fearing it may antagonise the wartime German government. Later her "socialist fairy-tales" became popular in East Germany. One of her best-known works is The Children From No. 67 series written as a collaboration with her husband.
