17597 Stefanzweig           Discovered 1995 Mar. 4 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
Austrian Stefan Zweig (1881-1941), biographer, essayist and writer, communicated with world figures and had great confidence in the good strengths of humanity. His books were translated into more than 20 languages. Having emigrated in 1934, he suffered from being abroad and eventually committed suicide.
