The French writer Albert Camus (1913 - 1960) was born in Algeria. He lived with his French parents and grew up in extreme poverty, but succeeded entering the university. In 1940 he moved to France and was during World War II in the French Resistance. In his prose, drama and essayistic he is in contract with the existentialism's main question, how we as human beings relate to life's fundamental meaninglessness and absurdity.
