This February 8, 1977 10 pfenning stamp (Mi #21299) of the DDR is from the four-value set commemorating Famous Germans. Stamp depicts writer and pacifist Arnold Zweig (1887-1968).

From wikipedia, "That night (1929) Zweig would attend one of Hitler's speeches. He told his wife that the man was a Charlie Chaplin without the talent. Zweig would later witness the burning of his books by the National Socialists. He remarked that the crowd 'would have stared as happily into the flames if live humans were burning'. He decided to leave Germany that night."
