A collection of works written by Franz Kafka and Max Brod will be transferred to the Israel National Library Museum ninety years after Kafka's death and after four years of litigation, according to a Tel Aviv Family Court decision on Friday.

The court decision ended ninety years of controversy and multiple transfers of the works before they will finally become entrusted to a public institution.

The National Library Museum's victory came in the face of protests by two women, the third in the line of inheritors of Kafka's works, who alternatively may have wanted to profit from selling the works, keep them for themselves for sentimental value or give them to another museum, such as the Museum of Modern Literature in Marbach, Germany.
