Graphic artist and cartoonist, friend and collaborator of Erich Kastner and editor Erich Knauf (for some time they were known as the three Erichs). He published his best known and still very popular cartoon series "Vater und Sohn" (father and son) under the pseudonym E.O. Plauen (Plauen being the name of the city of his birth). He was arrested by the Gestapo together with his friend Erich Knauf and committed suicide in the night before his trial. In his last letter he tried to exonerate his friend, but to no avail. Erich Knauf was executed the following day. Ohser's body was cremated and his ashes were brought to Plauen by his widow.
