The Franz Kafka Society

The main aim of this non-governmental organisation is to support the revival of traditions that had given rise to the so-called Prague German Literature phenomenon while restoring general awareness of the Central European cultural significance, a region where the Czechs, the Germans and the Jews have been living together for centuries. Franz Kafka is a symbol for the mentioned traditions and the organisation devotes attention to his works and seeks to make his heritage a natural part of the Czech cultural context.
