Kafka’s last wish was to have all his manuscripts destroyed – instead, his friend Max Brod dedicated himself to editing and posthumously publishing the work. The story of Brod’s work is recounted here, including a contested trial for ownership between the courts of Israel and Palestine as both countries vied to claim Kafka’s legacy.
