#When he was 40 years old, the famous Bohemian novelist and short story writer FRANZ KAFKA (1883–1924), who never married and had no children, was walking around the Staglitz Park in Berlin when he met a little crying girl, because she lost her beloved doll. She and Kafka searched for the doll but did not find it. Kafka told her to meet there the next day and look again.
The next day, when they did not find the doll again, Kafka gave the girl a letter written by the doll, in which she said: "Please don't cry. I'm going on a trip around the world. I'll write to you about my adventures. "
Thus began a story that lasted for the rest of Kafka's life.
When they met, Kafka read aloud the letters he had carefully written about the adventures and conversations of the beloved doll that the girl found fascinating. Finally, Kafka read her a story from the story stating that the doll was returning to Berlin, and then presented her with a doll he had bought. "She doesn't look much like my doll," said the little girl. Kafka wrote another letter explaining, "My travels have changed me." The girl hugged her new doll and took it home with her. A year later Kafka died.
Many years later, the already grown girl found a letter, hidden in the doll. A small letter signed by Kafka stated: "Everything you love is very likely to be lost, but in the end, love will come back in a different way." #praha#franzkafka#kafka#prague#famousnovelist#wanders#moralstories#czechrepublic#czechpoet#prague 🇨🇿 #czechia
1923, Moravia, Czech Republic. Three Moravian peasants visit church.
Moravians are a West Slavic ethnographic group from the Moravia region of the Czech Republic, who speak the Moravian dialects of the Czech language or Common Czech or a mixed form of both. Along with the Silesians of the Czech Republic, a part of the population to identify ethnically as Moravian has registered in Czech censuses since 1991. The figure has fluctuated and in the 2011 census, 4.9% of the Czech population declared Moravian as their ethnicity. Smaller pockets of persons declaring Moravian ethnicity are also native to neighboring Slovakia.
