Josef Pelz von Felinau

Josef Pelz von Felinau (24 October 1895 – 15 February 1978) was an Austrian writer who authored many novels and radio plays. He occasionally worked as a screenwriter. His 1936 novel about the sinking of the RMS Titanic served as the basis for the 1943 German anti-British film Titanic, although some of the claims it was based on have been discredited.[1]
