Kafka's Last Love

Diamant, Kathi

Dora Diamant, with Franz Kafka the year before his death and then embroiled in the war and politics of the first half of the twentieth century, is revealed in this biography, 15 years in the making.
Kathi Diamant (not related) obtained material from the Comintern and Gestapo archives to tell Diamant's story against the cultural and political backdrop of twentieth century Europe.
Originally buried in an unmarked grave, her family added a tombstone in 1999 that says:"Who knows Dora knows what love is."
