Ludwig Zenon Friedwald (Louis Fox, Zenon Frivald-Vardan, Wardan) (17 April 1906 in Lviv – 3 December 1976 in Tel Aviv) was an Israeli writer, artist, and lyricist.[1]

He wrote the lyrics for Ta ostatnia niedziela (The Last Sunday), Zakochany księżyc, and Zygmunt Białostocki's hit M'ken nisht tsvingen tsu keyn libe.[2]

In September 1939, Friedwald, who worked at the Polish Ministry Of Military Affairs, was evacuated to Romania and later to Greece, Turkey, and finally Israel. He became a key figure in post-war Polish-Jewish circles in Israel.[3]
