The article discusses the distinct experiences of two Jewish writers in Vienna throughout the first weeks and months of World War One and explores how they reflect on it in their writing. David Fogel arrived in Vienna only in 1913 whereas Stefan Zweig was born in the Austrian capital and grew up within a rather protected bourgeois environment. Nevertheless, they do not necessarily represent two specific Jewish social groups, but followed individual paths. The article sheds light on the two writers´connection to the city of Vienna, their (literary) languages and the topos of isolation in their work. With those aspects in mind, their writing about and during the war will be explored. After comparing their specific experiences and the resulting writing, it is concluded that Fogel did not necessarily write the war even at time of war whereas Zweig did write the war from different perspectives, depending on the time and the expected audience.
