LECTURE: Kafka's Magic Prague

October 23, 2014, 6:30 PM

On October 23, at 6:30 pm, Czech Cultural Attaché Robert Řehák will give the lecture Kafka’s Magic Prague at the Embassy of the Czech Republic. Prague is a magical city with a vibrant history spanning more than one thousand years of coexistence among Czechs, Germans, and Jews. Through his lecture, Řehák will explore this majestic city through its many legends, including Rabbi Loew’s (also known as the Maharal) story of the Prague Golem, a creature made out of clay that protected the Prague Jews from anti-Semitic attacks (pogroms). Řehák will delve into the origins of the city and Emperor Charles IV. The stories paint a backdrop into the unique history that created a base for Franz Kafka´s writings. Savor these legends that unfold deeper meanings in the heart of Europe.
