National Library of Israel’s Franz Kafka Collection Now Online
From The Jerusalem Post:
The National Library of Israel announced on Wednesday that it has published its entire Franz Kafka collection online, according to a press release.
The collection includes a diverse array of literature and art comprised of manuscripts, notebooks, travel journals, personal letters and drawings. The process of publishing the works online took years, as it required intense restoration, conservation and digitization efforts.
His papers were safeguarded by The Max Brod Archive for many years before being brought to the National Library of Israel. Brod is primarily responsible for Kafka’s success, having published many of his works after the author’s death, including popular novels such as The Trial, Amerika and The Castle, and even writing the first biography of the Jewish writer.
