Cause of Death:
How FRANZ KAFKA died: From a very young age, Kafka’s health was delicate, for in 1917 he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, which is why he was convalescent for several periods throughout his life. In addition to this condition, it is said that he could have what is now known as schizoid personality, as he suffered from insomnia, headaches, possibly depression and anxiety.
It is known that Kafka was inclined towards vegetarian food and practiced naturism, so he constantly ingested unpasteurized milk, a reason believed to have contributed to tuberculosis.
By the end of 1923, pneumonia caused Kafka to return to his parents’ home in Prague, but as his condition worsened, he had to enter the Wiener Wald sanatorium, where he had a relapse of the tuberculosis he suffered, as it was located in the larynx, eating had become very painful, so during his last weeks of life he only ingested liquids.
In a desperate attempt to save his life, Franz Kafka was transferred to Dr. Hoffmann’s sanatorium in Kierling, where he died, despite the efforts of the doctors.
He was buried in the Prague cemetery Zizkov, where he rests next to his wife in the Jewish area.
