Dr. Miroslav Feldman (28 December 1899 – 30 May 1976) was Croatian Jewish[1][2][3] poet and writer. Feldman was born in Virovitica on 28 December 1899. He studied medicine in Zagreb and Vienna. After graduation, he returned to Croatia and worked as a physician in Virovitica, Osijek, Pakrac, Sarajevo and Zagreb.[4] During World War II he joined the Partisans, where he helped organize the medical corps.[5]

Feldman was the president of the Croatian and Yugoslav PEN. He began his career as a poet, but he was most notable as a drama writer. Feldman wrote a psychological drama with elements of the grotesque, and works with a strong social critique, in which he satirically speaks of occurrence in the province and life of the higher society.[4]

Feldman died in Zagreb on 30 May 1976 and was buried at the Mirogoj Cemetery.[6][7]
