His family were German-speaking middle-class Ashkenazi Jews. His father, Hermann Kafka —was the fourth child of Jakob Kafka,   a shochet or ritual slaughterer in Oseka Czech village with a large Jewish population located near Strakonice in southern Bohemia. After working as a travelling sales representative, he eventually became a fashion retailer who employed up to 15 people and used the image of a jackdaw kavka in Czech, pronounced and colloquially written as kafka as his business logo.
Ottilie was his favourite sister. Consequently, Kafka's childhood was somewhat lonely,  and the children were reared largely by a series of governesses and servants. Franz's room was often cold. In November the family moved into a bigger apartment, although Ellie and Valli had married and moved out of the first apartment.

In early Augustjust after World War I began, the sisters did not know where their husbands were in the military and moved back in with the family in this larger apartment.
Both Ellie and Valli also had children. Franz at age 31 moved into Valli's former apartment, quiet by contrast, and lived by himself for the first time.
His Jewish education ended with his Bar Mitzvah celebration at the age of Kafka never enjoyed attending the synagogue and went with his father only on four high holidays a year.
German was the language of instruction, but Kafka also spoke and wrote in Czech.
In addition, law required a longer course of study, giving Kafka time to take classes in German studies and art history. His correspondence during that period indicates that he was unhappy with a working time schedule—from On 15 Julyhe resigned.
Two weeks later he found employment more amenable to writing when he joined the Worker's Accident Insurance Institute for the Kingdom of Bohemia. The job involved investigating and assessing compensation for personal injury to industrial workers; accidents such as lost fingers or limbs were commonplace at this time owing to poor work safety policies at the time.
It was especially true of factories fitted with machine lathesdrillsplaning machines and rotary saws which were rarely fitted with safety guards. Kafka was rapidly promoted and his duties included processing and investigating compensation claims, writing reports, and handling appeals from businessmen who thought their firms had been placed in too high a risk category, which cost them more in insurance premiums.
The reports were received well by his superiors. Kafka showed a positive attitude at first, dedicating much of his free time to the business, but he later resented the encroachment of this work on his writing time. After seeing a Yiddish theatre troupe perform in Octoberfor the next six months Kafka "immersed himself in Yiddish language and in Yiddish literature".
Later he attempted to join the military but was prevented from doing so by medical problems associated with tuberculosis with which he was diagnosed in According to Brod, Kafka was "tortured" by sexual desire  and Kafka's biographer Reiner Stach states that his life was full of "incessant womanising" and that he was filled with a fear of "sexual failure".
On 13 AugustKafka met Felice Bauera relative of Brod, who worked in Berlin as a representative of a dictaphone company. A week after the meeting at Brod's home, Kafka wrote in his diary: When I arrived at Brod's on 13 August, she was sitting at the table.
I was not at all curious about who she was, but rather took her for granted at once. Bony, empty face that wore its emptiness openly. A blouse thrown on. Looked very domestic in her dress although, as it turned out, she by no means was.Awards in your library.
