Reuters: Israel’s National Library to Share Reunited Kafka Archive Online
Israel’s national library said on Wednesday it received the last part of a collection of Franz Kafka’s writings that it planned to put online, after winning an ownership battle for part of the Prague-born Jewish novelist’s literary estate.
The library said that since court proceedings ended in 2016, it has been collecting the papers from sites in Israel and Germany and, finally two weeks ago, from a Swiss bank vault.
Litt said hoped some of the archive would be available on the Internet by the end of the year.
