Professor Medin's students in the Café Louvre, which Kafka used to frequent (no doubt for its exceptionally decadent hot chocolate), along with Albert Einstein and other notable early-twentieth-century intellectuals.

Last week, Professor Medin and students from the CL4000 Kafka and World Literature class traveled to Prague. Lucile Culver took these photographs  (more after the jump):

Professor Medin and several of the students from the Kafka class paused during a tour of Prague's historic Jewish quarter, including five synagogues (Professor Medin is wearing the required yarmulke), to pose in front of the Kafka memorial sculpture.
A sign points the way to Kafka's grave in the New Jewish Cemetery. Kafka is buried with his parents; his three sisters died in the ghettos or were killed in concentration camps.
