Prof. Mark H. Gelber - Does Kafka's heritage belong to Israel?

In October 2012 an Israeli judge ruled that the legacy of Kafka's friend, Max Brod which is said to contain some unknown Kafka manuscripts, should be made accessible to the general public in Israel. This ended a long debate between Germany and Israel.

Professor Mark Gelber (University of Beer Sheba, Israel) will discuss the central question of this debate, whether the right place for Kafka's legacy would indeed be Israel. Dr. Niels Bokhove, co-founder of the Nederlandse Kafka-Kring will respond to Mark Gelber, later the audience can participate in the discussion.

The lecture will be held in English
