It is impossible not to write. It is impossible not to write in German, and it is impossible to write in another way. That's how Kafka described his situation as an author in the Czech metropolis. For hundreds of years, Prague was a city in which German, Czech, and Jewish cultures enriched each other. Until this multicultural society was ended by violence.Since 1996, the Prague German-Language Theater Festival has worked to revive this situation. The event is vibrant, young, and successful.
