  • A century of wisdom : lessons from the life of Alice Herz-Sommer, the world's oldest living Holocaust survivor / Caroline Stoessinger. - Read On
    work Later on he would write I am familiar with indecision there s nothing I know so well but whenever something summons me I fall flat worn out by half hearted inclinations and hesitations over a thousand earlier trivialities When Alice and her mother asked him why he went to law school and became an attorney if he did not want to practice law Kafka s answer was simply that he could not decide what to study He made this doubly clear when after quitting Richard Lowy s law firm he wrote It had never been my intention to remain in the legal profession On October 1 1906 I entered his service and remained there until October 1 1907 One year Kafka celebrated Passover with the Herz family Despite his distaste for observing such traditions he found Passover with Alice s relatives a joyful family affair He seemed to tolerate and even accept in the Herz home precisely what he despised in his own family especially his father s hypocritical annual practice of Jewish traditions In A Letter to His Father Kafka wrote I could not understand how with the insignificant scrap of Judaism you yourself possessed you could reproach me Four days a year you went to the synagogue where you were closer to the indifferent than to those who took it seriously At holiday time Sofie s Orthodox mother Fanny who lived with them took over the kitchen and did her best to observe the Passover traditions With the help of the maid Fanny made kosher chicken soup matzo balls and the most tender brisket of beef A few days before the holiday she disposed of all leftover breads and pastries made with yeast and cleaned the cooking utensils plates and glasses with boiling water Sofie and the children helped with the housecleaning They polished the silver and set out their finest table linens Alice was the most industrious working hard to gain both her mother s and her grandmother s approval Alice s father who was usually excessively frugal opened his home to friends gentiles neighbors strangers and the poor for the holiday in keeping with the tradition He also invited the most senior of his factory workers to share in the seder feast In 1912 the year that Kafka probably participated the Herz seder was one of their largest and aside from the family and Felix included Kafka neighbors several factory workers and the writer Oskar Baum Irma cautioned Alice to treat Baum who was blind just like anyone else Much later when Max Brod wrote about Kafka s first meeting with Baum Alice recognized her sister s advice as a seminal moment in her moral education As Brod was introducing them Kafka silently bowed to Baum greeting the blind man as an equal That was what he was like Baum said Superior in depth of humanity to the ordinary run of kindness Alice does not recall all who came for the holiday that year What she remembers is folding the snow white linen napkins so she knows there were many guests at the table that evening Alice also thinks that Kafka asked her to sit next to him It was the duty of Alice and Mitzi to distribute the Haggadoth the booklets recounting the story of Passover Friedrich Herz who had also been raised Orthodox led the abridged readings in German Alice and Mitzi who were the youngest read the four questions together their father explained the ancient meaning of Passover and Kafka helped the girls search for the afikomen They all repeated the ancient text This year we are here next year in Jerusalem No one with the possible exception of Kafka could have imagined that Jerusalem would become their safe haven in less than thirty years When their father led Dayenu the children s favorite Passover song in his rich baritone voice everyone even Kafka sang When the men retired to the living room for fine French brandy and cigars they asked eight year old Alice to play She obliged with a bagatelle by Beethoven and a Chopin waltz Kafka frequently fell in love Although he made it clear that he dreamed of marriage he complained that no one understood him To have one person with this understanding a woman for example would mean to have God he wrote in his diary He was not looking for a wife who insisted on crystal chandeliers and as Alice says that heavy German furniture But Alice and her mother were certain that he would never decide to marry He introduced Felice Bauer to them as his fiancée then broke off the engagement only to get engaged to her a second time for just a few weeks until he changed his mind again Hoping to comfort him Alice s mother suggested to Kafka that he like Beethoven and Brahms was an artist and that he belonged to the world rather than to one woman But that was before Dora Both Alice and her mother felt that twenty five year old Dora Diamant was a different and affirmative presence in his life Alice s mother said Franz had found his own true nature in Dora and she hoped he would marry her Thinking back to those days Alice feels that her mother was instinctively right Kafka was attracted to Dora s independent spirit as well as her motherly gentleness Watching her scaling and gutting fish in the kitchen of a summer camp he disapprovingly blurted out Such gentle hands and such bloody work Dora was embarrassed Brod revealed That was the beginning of his friendship with Dora Diamant his life s companion Like Kafka s mother Dora had been raised Orthodox but like Kafka she had escaped from her family s plans for her life Even though Kafka had suffered through his Bar Mitzvah in 1896 he had since declared himself an atheist and a socialist Dora s family had insisted that she marry early and aspired
