Leon Yudkin, Writer and author
The Prague Circle was a unique phenomenon, arising from the mix of cultures, German, Czech and Jewish, at the end of the 19th. century. A small group of writers in Bohemia put out a brilliant array of works in German and formed the backbone of a special kind of Modernism. Writers such as Kafka, Brod, Werfel, Rilke, Meyrink, Perutz and others, constituted a minority within a minority, on the threshold of languages and cultures. The new Judaic philosophy of Buber was also created in Prague, and penetrated the atmosphere, leading to significant opposition.
Reception followed by lecture.
