Kafka’s middle sister married Josef (Pepa) Pollak (1882-1942), chief clerk of the Fuchs company. She bore him two daughters: Marianne, Steiner by marriage (born 1913), who lives in London and administers the Franz Kafka legacy deposited in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, and Lotte (1914-1931). According to Franz, Valli was the sibling closest to their father, even though, or maybe because she resembled him the least in character.
Kafka’s youngest sister, and the one closest and dearest to him in spite of the nine-year difference in their ages, married Josef David (1891-1962), a top official at the Union of Bohemian Insurance Companies. Ottla had two daughters, Věra (born in 1921), married name Projsová and later Saudková, and Helena (born in 1923), married name Kostrouchová and later Rumpoltová.
