Kafka's Sisters

An installation by artist Sebastian Jung in the foyer of the Jewish Museum Munich

On June 3, 1924, Franz Kafka died in a sanatorium near Vienna as a result of many years of tuberculosis and was buried in the New Jewish Cemetery in Prague on June 11. While Franz Kafka's life has been recorded in countless biographies, his three sisters remain largely in the shadows.

On the 100th anniversary of Franz Kafka's death, we would like to commemorate Elli, Valli and Ottla with an intervention by artist Sebastian Jung. Their biographies are representative of the extinction of German-speaking Jews in Prague, of which their brother is celebrated today as a symbolic figure.
