Long Description:
Pavel Tigrid (born October 27, 1917 in Prague, Austria-Hungary as Pavel Schönfeld, died August 31, 2003 in Héricy near Paris, France) was a publicist, publisher and author of Czech origin. He is considered one of the most important personalities of the exile Czech journalism.

He left Czechoslovakia as a young man to evade the Nazis. In Great Britain, he adopted the pseudonym Tigrid (after Tigris) when he worked as a broadcaster of anti-fascist propaganda in BBC.
Returning after the end of World War II, he continued his publishing career, soon clashing with the ascendant communist ideology. Fleeing arrest, he emigrated to West Germany, later moved to USA and finally settled in France. During the Cold War, Tigrid was a prominent representative of Czech anti-communist exile, authored several books and published numerous publications.
He returned to Prague for the second time after the Velvet Revolution, has been active in public life and served as a Minister of Culture (1994-96).
