In the summer of 1924 I was in Obergeogenthal near Brux. On Friday, 20 June, I repeat Friday, 20 June, I received a letter from a friend in Prague, the painter Erich Hirt. He wrote, ‘I have just learnt from the editorial staff of the “Tageblatt” that the writer Franz Kafka died on 3 June in a small private sanitarium in Kierling near Vienna. He was, however, buried here in Prague on Wednesday, 11 June 1924, in the Jewish cemetery in Straschinitz.”
