Georg Kafka, a distant relative of Franz Kafka, was born in 1921 in Teplitz-Schönau (now Teplice, ‎Czech Republic). In 1942 he was interned at Terezin, where he began writing poetry. In 1944 he ‎was deported to Auschwitz, where his mother had been sent as well. He was later transferred to the ‎camp at Schwarzheide, where he was murdered by the Germans at the end of 1944. He wrote the ‎poem “Segen der Nacht” in German in 1943, while at Terezin.‎
