Annemarie Schwarzenbach was a Swiss writer, journalist, photographer and traveler. In 1930 a relationship developed with Erika Mann, which much to Annemarie's disappointment did not last long, although they always remained friends. Still smarting from Erika's rejection, she spent the following year in Berlin. There she found a soul-mate in Klaus Mann, brother of Erika, and settled in with the Manns as an extended family. In 1932 Annemarie planned a car trip to Persia with Klaus and Erika Mann, and a childhood friend of the Manns, Ricki Hallgarten. The evening before the trip was due to start, on May 5, Ricki, suffering from depression, shot himself in his house in Utting on the Ammersee. In 1935 she returned to Persia where, despite her lesbian outlook, she married the French diplomat Claude Clarac, also a homosexual. In June, 1939 she embarked on a trip to Afghanistan with the ethnologist Ella Maillart. The adventure was made into a movie, The Journey to Kafiristan, in 2001. On September 7, 1942, in the Engadin, she fell from her bicycle and sustained a serious head injury, and she died on November 15. During her final illness her mother permitted neither Claude Clarac, who had rushed to Sils from Marseille, nor her friends, to visit her in her sick bed. After Annemarie's death, her mother destroyed all her letters and diaries. Claude died at the age of 96 in Thailand, where he first went as Ambassador of France. He leaves an adopted son, Henri Pageau-Clarac.
Together from 1935 to 1942: 7 years.

At Cimetière de Miséricorde (4 Rue de la Pelleterie, 44000 Nantes) is buried Achille "Claude" Clarac (1903-January 11, 1999). In 1935 Annemarie Schwarzenbach (May 23, 1908 – November 15, 1942) returned to Persia where she married the French diplomat Achille-Claude Clarac, also a homosexual. They had known each other for only a few weeks, and it was a marriage of convenience for both of them, since she obtained a French diplomatic passport which enabled her to travel without restrictions. They lived together for a while in Teheran but when they fled to an isolated area in the countryside, to escape the summerly heath, their lonely existence had an adverse effect on Annemarie, who became addicted to morphine. She returned to Switzerland for a holiday, taking in Russia and the Balkans by car. In June, 1942 in Tétouan she met up again with her husband Claude Clarac before returning to Switzerland. It was the last time they met, Schwarzenbach died in Nov. 1942 and is buried at Horgen Friedhof (Friedhofstrasse, 8800 Thalwil, Switzerland).
