Description

Marcel Noppeney was born on 24 April 1877 in Luxembourg in an upper middle class. He pursued studies in law and history in Paris and often frequented literary circles. At the beginning of the 1st World War in 1914, Noppeney founded an emergency services committee for the French and Belgian war casualties. In 1934, Noppeney created the “Société des écrivains luxembourgeois de langue française” (Society of Francophone Luxembourgian Writers), of which he served as the first president until his death in spring 1966. Immediately after the German invasion in 1940, Marcel Noppeney was arrested and transferred to the Dachau concentration camp. Upon returning to Luxembourg, Marcel Noppeney devoted himself fully to the “defence and honouring of the French language”.
