franz Kafka 100th anniversary


This year marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Franz Kafka – the most famous early 20th century Jewish author from Prague.

His mother tongue was German, and all of his writings are in German, but he spent his entire life among Czechs. He was born in Prague’s Old Town and had exceptionally strong ties with the city throughout his entire life.

kafka’s tram

From 9 April, there will be a “Kafka tram” running on the regular routes through Prague, decorated with illustrations by Czech artist Simona Lore. You can read quotes both on the inside and outside of the tram that will shorten your trip and maybe even get you thinking.

“Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.”

The project was initiated and is coordinated by the Adalbert Stifter Association (Munich) in cooperation with Prague – UNESCO City of Literature, a project of the Prague Municipal Library.
